#005 vince the blue-footed booby


"Vince is a bird who struts to his own tune and his garish taste in clothing makes him stand out from the hatch. He fancies himself as a gift to the glittery revolving dance floor, and his strong cologne and fluorescent outfits ensure the hens all know he’s there. Pride of place in his nest is a three-foot mirror ball, which he ensures is always dust-free and glinting in the sunlight. It makes for quite a vigorous cleaning routine, but that and his hundreds of other shiny, perfectly polished surfaces, mean he’s never short of a chance to admire how he shakes his tail feathers." (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
