We did it, mate!
The Demoman on his feathered friend

The Bird-Man of Aberdeen is a community-created miscellaneous item item for the Demoman. It is a large green macaw that sits on the Demoman's shoulder and wobbles around under movement.

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.

When a player equipped with the Bird-Man of Aberdeen, in Pyroland, kills an enemy unassisted by another player, the killfeed shows the bird getting the assist, with its custom name if it has one.

The Bird-Man of Aberdeen was contributed to the Steam Workshop under the name "Some spare eyes v_2.3".
