Well how about this? A transgender bird (the feathered kind) in New Zealand.
Zealandia could be home to New Zealand's first transgender korimako, dubbed the ''butch bellbird''.

Staff at Wellington's Zealandia eco-sanctuary use the nickname because the young bellbird has DNA tested as female but acts like a male, and has a mix of each sex's plumage.

Victoria University moult expert Ben Bell was intrigued to hear about the bird's plumage.

"It could be due to a hormonal imbalance or it could be a reaction to shock or an incomplete moult - given the appearance and behaviour, any of those would be unusual though."

It is the first species Zealandia staff have seen showing the unusual gender mix.
