LOL - Well, 'brain goo' might scare some people away but this is amazingly detailed! Usually, people think of birds as these wonderful, peaceful and harmless creatures flying about making beautiful music. Not until you see this does reality strike and make you realize that they are efficient predators, and their wonderful songs may consist of messages like 'stay off my tree!, or 'get away fom my mate you scumbag!' Well maybe the scumbag part is made up, but they are very dynamic creatures.
