Meet Nelson, a Baby Kea Parrot From Germany
He's so ugly, he's almost cute
This baby parrot is named Nelson, and he is arguably one of the ugliest birds in the world. His parents rejected him when he was born. But don't feel too badly -- he has around-the-clock care from staff at Bergzoo in Germany. And one day, he will grow into a Kea parrot, with beautiful green feathers and a flash of orange under his wings.
