A very bizarre bird was photographed in Venezuela recently. Meet the Potoo, which is rarely seen in daylight. - Imgur
what the fuck is that
that looks like a god damn nightmare
fucking hell it yells mom like a lost child!! This is straight out of a horror film
It gets creepier when you know that these types of birds were thought to be psychopomps, harbingers of death who helped guide souls to the underworld. This status is found in cultures ranging from Aboriginal Australia, to Europe, to the Incas, because of their haunting cries.
Am… am I a horrible person because I think it looks cute?
ah yes the “harbinger of death”
"leader of souls"
truly majestic bird
