Poster: Ill Bird

'Tis an ill bird that fouls its own nest.
(English proverb)

The source for the proverb is English Proverbs and Proverbial Phrases by William Carew Hazlitt (Google Books). The poster is made with AutoMotivator. The hoopoe, Stinkvogel in German, who was famous in folklore for building its nest out of excrement, although the cause of its smelly nest is a secretion of the brooding female which deters predcators; the image is from Wikipedia.
