The Secretary’s Nose

This is the beak (or is it bill?) of a Secretary bird. This tall, long-legged bird usually lives in sub-Saharan Africa.

What did this image teach me?

Secretary birds are unusual in the fact that they hunt from the ground, rather than from the air like most birds of prey. In fact they much prefer walking to flying.

      It certainly is! Well, apart from those bits that are closed due to COVID-19, that is.
