Protect the Golden Pricker

An announcement from the city of Esteille.


The cutest and most handsome of all birds, with its fluffy golden feathers.   They fill the streets of Esteille and have become the symbol of our city.

Amazing singer

Their delicate songs fill all with awe.   Their ear piercing cris fill all with ire.

Very territorial and deep dive at people:
  • in spring during love season,
  • in summer when they have babies,
  • in winter when lots of foreign birds migrate here,
  • in winter when it's cold and there is no food...
  • Protect us

    They eat river moss, a terrible plague that would cover the entire city if their seeds were not destroyed so thoroughly.   The one summer a ritual killed all birds in the city, river moss killed a thousand peopel with its toxic fumes.

    Protect them

    No matter how aggressive and annoying they are, they are essential to our life in Esteille and ought to be protected.   Attacking them, touching their nest, and bothering them during courting period are all illegal!

    Take care of the golden pricker and it will take care of you!

    Yeah, that sounds exactly like a biologist's notes about a bird. They wanted to write something nice about the birds and then the birds showed their mean personalities but they still had to write something positive about them.   Great job!

    Thanks! And Indeed XD I see the poor biologists as having to make a yearly spring campaign to beg people to take care of the birds despite how annoying they are XD

    I honestly love how this reminds me so much of posters I've seen in parks before about endangered wildlife. I absolutely love this birb, though I can't help getting the impression they're like robins, adorable, but complete gits!
