King Vulture - Sarcoramphus papa

The King Vulture, Sarcoramphus papa (Falconiformes - Cathartidae), is a species of vulture found in the southern part of Mexico and throughout Central and South America to northern Argentina.

The most noticeable difference between king vultures and other vultures is that they are largely covered with white plumage. King vultures are large birds, their wingspan can reach up 1.98 m. Their bare head, neck, beak and muttle are red, orange and yellow, with very striking eyes that are straw, white or silver in color. Their beaks have a hooked tip and cutting edges, which are very strong. There are no differences between the males and females of this species.

Blue-winged kookaburra (Dacelo leachii)

The Blue-winged Kookaburra is a large species of kingfisher native to northern Australia and southern New Guinea. It is sexually dimorphic, with a blue tail in the male, and a rufous tail with blackish bars in the female. The Blue-winged Kookaburra hunts and eats a great variety of animals that live on or close to the ground. In the summer wet season, insects, lizards and frogs make up a higher proportion of their diet, while they eat arthropods such as crayfish, scorpions, spiders, fish, earthworms, small birds and rodents at other times. They have even been recorded waiting for and snatching insects flushed out by bushfires. The Blue-winged Kookaburra is a cooperative breeder, a group being made up of a breeding pair and one or more helper birds who help raise the young.

They have big heads

That is spelled incorrectly.

Apparently both spellings are acceptable

I feel like this is the american’s fault.

Not according to this website

"American and Irish liquor producers (and copy editors) tend to favor the spelling WHISKEY, while Canadian, Scottish, and Japanese producers (and copy editors) tend to favor (or should I say, favour) WHISKY."
