You ever see an animal that always has an expression of being tired of you? That's this bird. This is a bush stone-curlew at the Sedgwick Zoo. The bush stone-curlew is a nocturnal scrub bird that mainly feeds on small grassland animals from insects all the way up to small mammals. As a defense, this bird will freeze in place often in hilarious poses. Their call is unique, being compared to the screaming of an opossum.
Native to Australia
Seriously every photo I find of this bird they have the most tired, judgmental look in their eyes. Like, yeah you owe them money but they saw you buy that pack of skittles, and they're just passive aggressive enough to not confront you about it but they'll remember. If this bird was a person it'd be the kind to mutter the b-word at you under their breath as you walk away from an argument. Not the Samuel L. Jackson way of saying the b-word either, but like I can't believe you've done this kind of b-word. A dissapointed b-word.
