It is often said that seeing a bird in the house is a sign of approaching death, and this is true if the animal in question is a Departure Bird. The Hateful Northern House Wren is a completely black bird with a flat head, raised, short tail, and long, curved beak; it has an extremely long, flexible, strong, forked tongue that can break through skin, muscle, and frail bone. Typically, Departure Birds are small creatures, growing no larger than 4.5 in. long and 0.35 oz. During the spring and summer, they can be found in open woodlands, forested regions, and exposed areas with plenty of grasses shaded by trees.

I'm a pretty quiet person from Southern Ohio that loves monsters, animals, stories, and history. I moved to Fairbanks, AK to study art and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2017, afterward moving to & working in El Paso, TX. Currently, I reside in Lucasville, OH.
I enjoy outdoor activities - like hiking, kayaking, and sightseeing - reading, drawing, throwing pottery, sculpting, playing video games, and playing dungeons and dragons with my friends. ~Kristen Puckett - Appalachian Illustrator, Folklorist, & Ceramicist
