According to legend, storks deliver babies to expectant parents all over the world, sounds pretty heroic to me :)
Thanks to my lovely wife for the idea, and for her heroic delivery of my three great kids!
Shake your tail feathers!
NOTE: There is some serious overhang issues with this build. While the bird is able to pivot straight up and fit within the 4x4 plate's footprint….it looks terrible that way. I understand if this build is eliminated due to this pretty serious rule infraction, but I was too happy with the way it came out not to submit :)
