Am I gorgeous..or what?

The eyes have it - check out those eyelashes!

This Secretary bird is a long legged, rather bizarre looking bird who's party trick is killing snakes by stamping on them. This one is part of the demonstration team at Newent Birds of Prey Centre.

Had to do quite a lot of cropping/cloning on this shot, since the bird was behind mesh.
