garyheaton, Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, you know. The shoebill may not be the most handsome creature to walk the earth, but he is one of God's creations. And while I wouldn't call him beautiful, I certainly wouldn't call him ugly either.

An awesome huge bird. I'm amazed at how eerily human-like their eyes are and a bit creepy.
