the northern hornbird is a fan-favourite of Teresi birdwatchers and small animal afficionados alike. its round, fluffy apperance makes it incredibly endearing to most people, though they are quite shy and don't stay around for people to watch for very long. you can find all kinds of merchandise styled after them though, from stuffed animals to jewelry to even dinnerware.
