He has a face that only a mother could love.
But sadly for poor Nelson, his didn't.
The parrot chick, who must surely be a contender for the ugliest bird in the world, was rejected by his parents after he hatched.
He was the only one of three eggs laid by his mother to survive and hatch.
As such, the youngster is now being cared for around the clock by staff and spent the first four weeks of his life in an incubator.
Nelson, who has been described as looking like a cross between an alien and a roast chicken, was born last month at Bergzoo in Germany.
Nelson will eventually blossom and be Ugly no longer!
