We came across this evocative photograph of what we have named the bird monster. Just look at it.
It’s not at all like the frogmouth, but still it makes for quite a fancy looking little creature.
Ruffled plumage, evil stare, contemplative beak… why, if we were this particular bird monster we’d be thinking, “You know what? I think I’m going to build me a MASSIVE ruddy great big nest on someone’s roof!”
The Bird Monster
Now if you’ve read the Professional Moron blog in pedantic detail you’ll know we once had some pigeons living in our roof.
Also, we promote the whole birdwatching thing. Which is why we eventually did a review of that there excellent Bird Therapy.
That’s a mighty fine read, should you wish to dip into the world of looking out for other spectacular bird monsters.
Anyway, the pigeons in our rooftop were pretty lively individuals. This was in Longsight of Manchester around the 2009 mark.
They were noisy, coo noise (no, not Zooey Deschanel) creatures that never seemed to sleep. We should imagine Bird Monster has a similarly belligerent family situation going on. Just look at the hair, for starters.
A family of Punk lunatics flapping about the place and demanding worms and other food stuffs (cabbages?) can’t be the most delightful bunch to have ensconced in your attic. Still, you’re not going to argue with this geezer.
Just look at those blood red eyes. There’s the old saying, “Don’t let them see the whites of your eyes!”, well this is a “Just don’t look at the bird monster!” type situation thing. Oh yes.
We love the animal kingdom here at Professional Moron and we believe the bird monster is the best beast we’ve seen in some time. So, huzzah!
