It’s official.   Nelson, pictured above, is the ugliest bird in the world.
He has a face that only a mother could love.
But sadly for poor Nelson, his didn’t.
The parrot chick, who must surely be a contender for the ugliest bird in the world, was rejected by his parents after he hatched.
However, he can at least take some comfort in the knowledge that he will one day grow up to be an attractive Kea parrot.

As such, the youngster is now being cared for around the clock by staff and spent the first four weeks of his life in an incubator.
Keas are large parrots native to the alpine regions of New Zealand that are known for their intelligence and curiosity.

Adults are mostly olive-green with a brilliant orange flash under their wings.
But his looks won’t last forever…
Nelson, who has been described as looking like a cross between an alien and a roast chicken, was born last month at Bergzoo in Germany.

 He was the only one of three eggs laid by his mother to survive and hatch, but was promptly rejected by his parents.

  1. All birds hatched naked are not pretty to look at but it is NOT why the parent rejects them (Roop Gill). Get some experience, do your research and put the facts in print or at least use a different approach. Raise your standards, have some pride in your work and stand up to reality. Too many stupid articles make you stupid.
