As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Cockerel walks like a human


Local citizens in the Chinese city of Jinhua were amazed on Monday to find a cockerel walking around bolt upright like a human.
The owner of the unusual bird, Zong Jianping, said he bought it from a farmer in a village in Anhui Province for 10,000 yuan (£1,000) during a business trip last month.
According to local news reports, Jianping has now sent the three-year-old bird to a zoo as he had no experience of keeping poultry and wanted more people to see this strange creature.
