A Fearsome Critter reported by the American lumberjacks of the 19th and 20th centuries. This bird from Minnesota and Wisconsin, built its nest in the shape of an igloo, with the exit underneath. Somehow unknown to man the eggs managed to stay in the nest. The bird also had the ability to fly backwards so that it could watch the scenery that it had just flown over.
