Here’s something you don’t see every day: a bird’s ear! That little hole in the side of this poor guy’s head is not a wound of any kind, it’s his ear. It’s located below and behind his eye, and above his jaw hinge. It can sometimes be a source of tears, since the canal goes to the brain and therefore, into his skull.
