This bird is a fruit-eater & the fermented fruit in its gut gives it the title of Stinkbird. DNA tests have shown it has no other related birds. Looks can be deceiving!!!

My goodness, their so very beautiful! I don't get it though, why do they call it a stinkbird, can you smell the fermented fruit in it's gut, or does it fart the smell of the fermented fruit? Sorry, inquiring minds...

Thanks bloorox - they are pretty & pretty stinky by the sounds of it!!

What a nice pair! I must say they look very interesting, pretty even :) Thanks for sharing pic & info, robryan!

LOL!! I don't think they set out to get tipsy Rebecca - it's just part of their digestive process that stinks!!
Thanks Cathy - glad you enjoyed them!

They could be a little tipsy from all that fermented fruit. Happens in the best of families. I know.

waxwing

It has no other relatives because they all disowned the species! Life ain't easy when you're a stinkbird . . .
