- A huge monster in the form of a bushtit.
Giant bushtits are much more interesting than their mundane vermin basal creatures. They're quite large, growing to be slightly larger than a full-grown lion, and appear in clusters of five to ten individuals. Being large, tamable, egg-laying, breeding creatures, they are very much worth capturing and taming, and given their large cluster numbers and a bit of luck you'll be able to hook a breeding pair. With five to thirteen eggs laid per clutch, giant bushtits can be used to establish an exotic egg farm; with a very nice distribution of meat products (if without a value multiplier), they can be made the basis of a strong meat industry; and with a perhaps surprisingly high pet value of 500, they can be made into excellent happiness vehicles for your fortress.
Some dwarves prefer them for their somewhat great size (offhand insult?) and twittering groups.

A little known fact to dwarves is that human men will chase these creatures to the end of the earth, seeking little else than to rub a bar of *Anaconda Soap* on them.
