Bird-Man of Aberdeen
The Bird-Man of Aberdeen has three unique styles. The second style, "Distinguished", colors the bird white, resembling a cockatoo, while "Imbued", the third style, changes the belly feathers to a dull green. When painted, "Distinguished" bleeds the entire bird the same color, aside from the tail- and head-feathers, and "Imbued" colors the belly feathers duller than that of the rest of the bird's feathers.
It can be strangified using a strangifier.
