A study of likes on the photo-sharing app has (perhaps surprisingly) deemed the Australian and south-east Asian native ‘most aesthetically appealing’

If someone were to ask what the most “Instagrammable” bird in the world would be, it’s unlikely that the frogmouth – whose main aesthetic goal is to look like a jagged tree branch – would be front of mind.

But it seems science says otherwise, the dishevelled looking Australian and south-east Asian native taking out the top spot in a study from Germany’s University Hospital Jena, which aimed to see which bird species reigned supreme on the photo-sharing app.

The study, published last week by German researchers Dr Katja Thömmes and Dr Gregor Hayn-Leichsenring set out to analyse nearly 30,000 bird photos from nine popular avian photography Instagram accounts, using an algorithm to record which photos comparatively attracted the most “likes” on the photo-sharing platform.

“Presumably interestingness, idiosyncrasy and the situational context all play their part in the aesthetic appeal of bird photos to the human observer.”

It’s a very versatile bird in terms of looks !

 

It can be frightening, it can look terrified, screaming at the top of its lungs, mesmerized, very cute, crying for help or even very angry ! It looks very funny hahaha !

 

Never thought science would be looking for the most instagramable bird tho hahahaha !

Unless she specifically nests at frozen yogourt shops, vandalizes them and harasses the owners, I don't know. :bradley:
