Intelligent Holocene Parrot by nemo-ramjet Intelligent Holocene Parrot by nemo-ramjet
Weird Hopper. That's what they called the thing, but it had no tail like hoppers, nor long ears, nor a pouch. Its arms and legs were different and its head was big and swollen, almost like a person's, without the beak. It had cracked like an egg when Big Crest had stomped it with an obsidian hammer clenched in his toes.

"It was smart, too," said Big Crest's friend. "it came to the beach on this strange, floating tree trunk. I wonder if there are more like it?"

"Then we'll kill them too!" roared Big Crest. "The warriors of Red Island are strong and numerous. We have stones, spears, knives. We burn things. Let all Weird Hoppers come, we'll grind them all into feather-paint and lizard feed!"

I like the little story! So how big are they, if it could so easily "stomp" a human head it must be at least emu-size if not bigger eh? Do you have an idea of which parrot group it belongs to, or is that meant to remain mysterious?

It's probably related to keas... these are big birds indeed, about 1.7 - 2 meters tall.

By the sound of the description, they appear to live in Australia, I thought Palm Cockatoo when I looked at it.
