Oscar the featherless bird - ugly or cute?

Oscar the cockatoo has a disease called beacon feather which affects the immune system. This virus causes her to pull out her own feathers because of irritation but she still has feathers on her head because she can’t reach those. She may look like the ugliest bird but Oscar is well loved by the workers at Humane Society of Broward County because she is special.

I think Oscar is beautiful in her own way. It's surprising how much her wings look like human arms without the feathers.
