A curious piece that will not be fully explained until the discovery of Charles original painting of this fabulous creature the only link we have is a working sepia sketch from around 1897. According to Charles diary it is mentioned only twice, once during a trip to Peru and secondly after stumbling across it unexpectedly in India. Both times the bird looked surprised and shocked in equal measures which initially Charles put down to his sudden appearance startling the bird but subsequent studies reveals that the Ooh-Ahh bird lays a square egg every so often causing it to Ooh and Ahh at random intervals.

Its impact on history is still to be determined but early indicators point to hard boiled Ooh-Ahh eggs being adorned with dots and used as primitive dice by the indigenous people of the area.
