The Bird-Face Face-Off 8/8



Here it is, the final line-up of the Bird-Face Face-Off. Voting is now open and will remain open through the weekend. Vote by putting your bird's number into a comment in the comments section.

What will the winning bird receive? Prestige, honor, the title of "Bird Face of the Year," and a starring role in an upcoming comic.

Remember, according to the blue-footed booby, we are looking for the "craziest" bird face, whatever that means.

Vote early and often!

#3. Very Crazy.

DavidM said...

It's a toss up between the guinea fowl and the feather duster... but I think I'm going to have to go with #3!!

James said...

#6

Laura said...

¡Numero tres!

Candi Criddle said...

#6, it's my son's favorite at the Tracy Aviary

Mindy said...

#3 is pretty good (even though there's really no face to speak of), but I'm going with #6.

Q said...

#1. But you know, you could always put a poll up in the sidebar.

Enna Isilee said...

I'm torn between #1 & #3, but... I think I'm gonna go with #3, because the reason I like #1 is because it's such a pretty blue! But #3 is definitely the strangest.

Nathan said...

I'm voting #4. Many of the birds here have strange crests, ridges, or protuberances on a standard bird head. The flamingo head has none of that, instead, it is strange from the inside out, the whole shape is wacky. It's like an alien.

Q, I'm not quite savvy enough to put up a polling widget (maybe next time.) Also, I like people to be able to comment with their vote, if they want to.

Brandon said...

I'm gonna have to go with #3.

I wanted to go with #3 but, I think that those poor condors need some love.

So, #5!

Plus, can we really say that the feather duster has a crazy face? It might have a face like Brad Pitt for all we can tell (though, that would be crazy on a bird).

Greg and Leigh said...

Greg votes #5 condors rule!!
Leigh votes #5 go condors!!
Elias votes #2 he likes storks.

Carter said...

I vote for #3. It's way feathery. It's like a pillow's inside.

Number three. I wonder if it's hot in there.

It's so hard to decide, but I'm going to have to go for #6

Tiffany said...

Still the one (#1).
PSYCHO!

Lucy says #6!

shannon hale said...

#1. This is a toughie, no question, but that face stole my heart from the beginning and I gotta support its candidacy. Though I'm beginning to feel you on the flamingo. That beak!

Erin said...

#3!

Jessica Day George said...

#1. It looks like an overplucked punk vulture.

DaNae said...

I can see #3 has the glamour vote, but I still maintain it bypassed natural selection and was manufactured in a toy company next to My Pretty Ponies.

I'm going for #6. He's homely. He's got hideous dietary habits. He's the spokesman for menace. But by tootles, he’s utilitarian and he does the job no one else had the stomach for! Go Vultures!!!!! You can dispose of my reeking carcass any day of the week.

#3, definitely. :)

Not enough recognition for the wretched Guineafowl!
That head is a horrid, unclean thing! I mean, sure, if I had to choose which bird I wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley, I'd probably go with the condors, they're *dangerous.* If I saw the Guineabeast in an alley, I'd give it a kick and have done...but its face would yet stare at me. One terrible beady eye glaring up from the crumpled heap of feathers it would become, and that face would haunt me until my dying day. That face! That horrible face!

The condors are related the shoebill and flamingo are both waders the gueniefowl is very alert King Vultures a scavanger like the condors feather duster budgie a parrot and B.F. BOOBY is a seabird as indicated by his webbed feet but only one of them is a killer
