10 Secretary Birds That Will Give You Serious Eyelash Envy

The best hunters know that in order to lure in their prey, they need something to attract their attention. For secretary birds, that must be their luscious eyelashes! With so much natural beauty, it’s hard to believe these birds are a snake’s worst enemy!

Gorgeous features aren’t these birds’ only advantage. They also have long legs that make them about 4-feet tall and a wingspan of nearly 7 feet! The feathers around their heads look almost like a crown, and the orange surrounding their faces make their eyes all the more piercing.

While secretary birds are majestic creatures for so many reasons, we can’t quite get over their eyelashes. They put ours (and everyone else’s) to shame! To prove it, here are 10 secretary birds that are seriously working those gorgeous lashes — no mascara required.
