Say Hello To Our New Favourite Bird (PICTURES)

amazingly, ladies and gentlemen, this bird isn't out of a Disney cartoon - - it's a real-life, living, breathing creature. And its name is the potoo.

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Christeen & Allan because you have done so within the last day

Can other (real) birds receive the same attention and respect?
