Seeking refuge in South America? Here’s our top five places to hide out in Ecuador. 1. Cassowary, AustraliaAccording to the Guinness Book of Records), the cassowary is the world’s most dangerous bird. Standing as tall as a person, it gets easily annoyed and can kill humans by using scary kick-boxing moves or slashing with its dagger-sharp claws. Alas, these handsome, misunderstood ‘gardeners of the rainforest’ are endangered, but you can still see them in New Guinea and northern Queensland. Find flights to Darwin2. Skuas, ScotlandSkuas are nasty pieces of work. Not only do they chase other birds until they throw up their lunch, and then nick it (nice!), they attack people. This usually only happens if you wander too close to their nests, which happens a lot on the Shetland Isles. Fair enough really, but it hurts when they bash you on the head with a sharp beak, at speed. Arctic skuas are dapper falcon-like birds, while great skuas (known as bonxies in Scotland) are ugly buggers. So try not to laugh at housewives’ favourite Alan Titchmarsh getting skua-d.

Come spring in the forests of northern Europe, it’s like Saturday night down Roxy’s as pumped-up bloke capercaillies try to impress the ladies and get lairy with each other.

Similar to the egg-stealing monkeys in the Angry Birds game, ravens try to steal tasty fieldfare nestlings. In response, the feisty fieldfare teams up with its mates and the mob mounts an aerial attack. Then they unleash their very own WMD: poo. It’s like dropping bombs. It can even be fatal for the poor old raven, and death by poo really wouldn’t be the nicest way to go! Find cheap flights to Sweden5. Secretary Bird, South AfricaThe stunning secretary bird is a descendant of the gigantic ‘terror birds’ that lived 50-60 million years ago. It struts about the Savannah on its supermodel legs, hunting for treats like deadly snakes. As well as preparing its lunch by madly stamping on its prey until unconscious enough to swallow, it has the endearing habit of waiting near bush fires, eating anything it can that is trying to escape. See it in action at places like Krueger National Park.
