The International Bird Rescue Research Center in Cordelia, California discovered an unusual image when viewing the x-ray of a rescued duck. The duck came in with a broken wing, but when Marie Travers, assistant manager of the center, radiographed the duck, she was stunned to see a very clear image of what appeared to be the face, or head, of an extraterrestrial alien in the bird's stomach. It was never determined as to what caused the alien face but they are still awaiting the results of a necropsy.
Unfortunately, the duck died quickly and quietly from its injuries. Either way, the center has decided to use their unusual discovery to help raise money. The x-ray will be auctioned off on eBay. The one-of-a-kind image will be sold along with a certificate of authenticity. All proceeds will go toward funding the center's rehabilitation programs.
The auction has begun and the current bid stands at $4,699.99. Then auction ends on June 4, 2006 at 15:00:00 PDT.
