On "Bluetop" there are some very very unusual animals and birds. One of the birds is a Tigerbird. Bluetop is the only planet that is red with a blue top.

Now you know. The Orange-Necked Vulture and Spotted Giraffes are never explained. Presumably, the tigerbirds are sexually dimorphic, as one has a striped beak and one doesn't, although I suppose one could be a juvenile, or they could be different colour morphs or subspecies. Who can say?
This piece rated one red star, a checkmark, and the comment "Good - and a excellent illustration!" Little did the author realize he'd be recycling this, some 32 years later, in an excellent example of "how to make a blog post with no current content whatsoever".
Happy New Year everyone!
