    MUSTACHE BIRDS!! and off the coast of Peru?!?! its meant to be!! These very dapper, moustachioed birds are inca terns, a rare species of seabird that breeds on the rocky cliffs of the coast of Peru and Chile. Their calls are reportedly like a cat's mew, and both the males and the females have these magnificent, white facial plumes. Their total population has been estimated to around 150,000 individuals.
