Petrels! Storm petrels!
Tiniest of all sea birds!
They’re called petrels because of…okay, you remember that whole thing where Jesus walked on water?
And then Peter’s like “I don’t think it’s really you!” and Jesus is like “You always fucking do this, Peter, I swear to Dad. Fucking who else would it be?”. And Peter’s like “If it’s really you, you’d ask me to come over there,” and so then Jesus was all like, “Ugh, okay, fine. Heeeeeeey, Peter, why don’t you come on out here and join me, bro?” *
So Peter hops to and starts walking on water over to him, only Peter fucking sucks at it, right? So Jesus has to save him because he keeps sinking.
Well, “petrel” basically means “little Peter.” It’s a bird who’s in the habit of tap-dancing badly across the water, whose name commemorates one of Jesus’s followers being a miraculous failboat.
*No? It’s okay, it’s cool. That’s basically how the story goes. I think they were in Galilee or some shit? For some reason, they all went out on a fucking boat, and Jesus was all “Aw, naw, I’m going to stay behind,” and then changed his mind and hoofed it out to the boat in the middle of a fucking storm. Deities, guys.

An extremely beautiful male Ferruginous Hawk. I was never allowed to work with him alone because of his huge size and awesome power. Imagine this diving at you! They live in North America, so watch out.
