5. Hooded Pitohui

The Hooded Pitohui along with its two close relatives, known as Variable Pitohui and the Brown Pitohui, were the first documented poisonous birds to be discovered by science. However, the native people of Papua New Guinea knew about it and call this bird the “garbage bird” because of its unpleasant smell. Also, people of New Guinea avoid eating this bird due to its bad and bitter taste and its tendency to make people sick. These birds have batrachotoxin (BTX) in their dander, skin and feathers. The batrachotoxin (BTX) is a neurotoxin identical to that used by deadly poison frogs in Colombia, South America.
