heheh… it head looks flattish owing to elegant side-swept ear tufts feathers. ^_~ this awesome bird unfortunately rarely seen, confining itself to the lowland forests near plantations fields, and emerging from its daytime roosting place mostly at dusk. ó_ò it has some unusual calls, which are often thought to be attributable to mysterious demons ó_ò by the local people. ö_ö hoo hoo-hoo, and a harsh quacking kakakakakak…^o^ lols
