Species Identification: Scavenger.Will avoid modern clothes and homewares, favouring vintage items. For this species, vintage is defined as being 1970s or earlier. Can be easily identified by plumage of vintage clothes and accessories. Sounds often associated with this species are the stomping of high heels, the clanking of jewellery and squeals of excitement when something special is found.
Social behaviour and territoriality: Species are very sociable, especially in presence of same species when they are known to bond through vocal activity. Calls emitted from these social groups can range from raucous laughter to quiet chatter. Species will also display territorial behaviour and if challenged (aggressor usually comprising grey-haired predator) will not easily release hold of their prey. The species can also be subject to verbal intimidation due to their individual plumage from sub-species of a lower intellect, but are known to vigorously defend themselves using vocalisation, gesticulation, or a combination of both.
Prey: Items from the 1970s and earlier. Species has the ability to easily identify the difference between 1970s' and contemporary polyester, with some having ability to identify a vintage print at a distance of two metres or more depending on conditions. Species will happily hunt by themselves or in groups, although aspects of territoriality may occur during group-hunting if they grasp hold of prey at the same time.
Distribution: Resident species found nationwide, being active during all seasons. However, some species may display reluctance to leave roosting habitat at first light in winter months unless there is a chance of optimal hunting available: i.e. car boot sale at 08:00 hours.
Happy hunting fellow species!
