The famous (and odd) secretary bird [Amazing Photo of the Day]

secretary bird

You heard about the bird right? great, because, guess what? “A-well-a bird bird bird, bird is the word A-well-a bird bird bird, well-a bird is the word.” Great song by The Big Boppers, and an even greater song when Peter sings it.

Anyway, this is the secretary bird from the lands of Africa, and it has a rather unique way of killing its prey. Lizards snakes and other small creatures have nothing to fear from the Secretary Birds beak, for its greatest weapon is its feet. Yes, this bad girl stomps on her prey until it’s dead.

    Can’t find anything like this by “The Big Boppers”. As far as I can tell, that’s not even a band. The song Surfin’ Bird is by The Trashmen, from 1964.
