He had been teased endlessly. For most of his school life, it was Big Bill Billy (and wasn't that an unfortunate name his parents had given him), and Billy the Billy Beak, among countless others. Relentless they were, the other children. Relentless and cruel. Day after day, week after week, month after month, and Billy had absorbed it all.

Had absorbed it all until today. He stood there, watching the children exit the school, and his eyes narrowed, and a grin that could wilt a rose grew on his face...

... and his revenge became infamous.

A sly grin and a stern eye. Don't tell him, but that beak really isn't attractive. He does have lovely gray feathers, though! (I don't want to insult him - he looks very proud.)

Had to look up where this guy can be found - did you see him in the wild? Very cool bird and photo!

Did you use a flash on him? He appears somehow a bit washed-out. GREAT eyes and "smile" on him.
