2019—Candy Corn Beak

Candy Corn is one of those sugary confections that appears briefly in the fall in time for Halloween and disappears until the next Halloween rolls around.  It is pure sugar with little flavor other than sweet, has absolutely no redeeming qualities, and I’m not sure anyone actually eats them.  I do know, however,  that it looks just pretty much like the beak of a Common Gallinule (formerly known as the Common Moorhen) and that must have been what it was modeled after.
