DID YOU KNOW?

The Huia was a legendary bird native to New Zealand. The Huia had exceptional dimorphism where there was extreme difference in the shape of the bill between sexes. Male Huia had a short, robust bill and a strong muscular skull structure suited to ripping open rotting wood. Female Huia had long, thin, curved bills that were suited to extracting the grubs.
