Worlds Ugliest Bird

      Isn't it a little difficult to think about a bird that looks ugly? We always thought that birds naturally look beautiful and elegant. But our mother nature somehow maintains a balance between beauty and ugliness and never ceases to surprise us with some variety. Oscar, a naked cockatoo has been regarded as the world's ugliest bird. This bird, which has unfortunately got only a bunch of feathers left on the head, has grabbed the limelight for its famed "ugliness".

      Oscar was detected with serious Beak and Feather Disease in the past. This is a disease caused by a viral infection in birds and is highly contagious. It attacks the claws, beaks and feathers of birds and Oscar was given a maximum time period of 6 months to live. However, she has endured all these and continues to live even after 12 years of that diagnosis. The wildlife center rescued her and transferred her to the Broward County Humane Society. Since then, Oscar has become the unofficial mascot of the Society. Oscar has braved the fatal illnesses and has survived proving the axiom correct that true beauty lies within. Her keepers love her for the marvelous inner strength she has displayed.

Nowadays, Oscar residing in that Society is not only a friendly bird, but is also an entertainer who impersonates Mick Jagger exceedingly well. No matter how ugly she may appear, she has won several hearts by her unusual sense of humor. She has become the crowd puller in Broward Society and the viewers stand enchanted as she croons beautifully. She is treated with special care by her attendants and her favorite food items are cottage cheese, fruits, egg rolls and McDonald's hash browns. Oscar is a burning example of courage and inner strength to the people around.
