I managed to get within 2 feet of this bird to take this shot. Only after looking at the photo when I got home did I see the second bird face, as graphicfunk and meanwile mentioned, so I had to enter it!

Thanks to all who voted and to those who left comments :)

This is almost an optical illusion because it looks like the beak is another bird. Great capture. Big bump.

Gee whiz is that disarming. His nostrils look like another set of eyes. Amazing photo and well done.
