Interesting facts:

Amongst the most prominent features of these large African-dwelling birds are their human-like eyes and the long, dark and curly "lashes." These aren't lashes at all. In facts birds don't have hair. The lashes consist of fine feathers - the function of which is to keep the dust out of the eyes.
