Guineafowl Clowns

You want to talk about bird-brains, I think guineafowl are the poster-kids! While they don’t appear to share a single brain amongst them they certainly are interesting to look at.  The plumage is eye-dazzling with it’s dizzying patterns of white dots and dashes on black, all of this on a  pear-shaped body. Add to that the clown-faces with the funny red wattles, featherless blue heads and wild Mohawk hairdos, and it makes for a hilarious combo I must say.  Originating from Africa, home of many exotic creatures, I think these might be the best proof yet of Mother Nature’s quirky sense of humour.
