We put many photos online. Researchers looked at what bird photos people "liked". They did research on the photo-sharing app Instagram. They wanted to know: "What makes a great bird photo?". They found the most 'instagrammable' bird is the frogmouth. This is a nocturnal bird that lives in India and Australia.

The researchers looked at 30,000 bird photos. They used a programme to find which photos got the most "likes". The frogmouth was top because of its large eyes. Most birds' eyes are on the sides of their head, but the frogmouth's eyes are in the centre. This makes it look human, cute and cuddly.
