Horneros are brown birds with rather short tails and fairly long bills. They are known for building mud nests that resemble old wood-fired ovens (the Spanish word “hornero” comes from horno, meaning “oven”)
I LOVE this picture! It appears he is hungry and ready to scoops up a bill full with his very next step. He is almost comical with is exaggerated features making him look clumsy! .What a wonderful bird!
