For a minute, I forgot about this challenge, and since it’s almost to the end, I decide to push to finish it. This post might be the shortest in the series I’ve done so far.
The blue on this bird is STUNNING!!
🐦 This bird is the largest and most colorful extant species of guineafowl.
🐦 The Vulturine Guineafowl got its name from its appearance.

🐦 Because of its bare skin of head and neck, this guineafowl can sometimes be confused for a vulture despite its beautiful plumage. I for one mistook it for one when I first came across the photo.
🐦 Although the female is smaller than the male, both sexes are similar in plumage.

🐦 The female lays between 13 and 15 eggs, but two females can lay in the same nest.
