- A huge monster taking the shape of a peach-faced lovebird.
Giant peach-faced lovebirds will fly around your fortress site, occasionally landing on trees to roost. They can be captured and tamed as a pet or an egg-laying machine. They have a sizable pet value of 500, like many giant creatures. In a desperate situation (or an unintended one, as your hunter might find it amusing if an expensive bolt got lodged in its head) they can also be used as sources of meat, bones and lard.
Due to their size, giant peach-faced lovebirds can cause significant damage to unarmed, inexperienced dwarves, often leading them to bleed to death. In evenly-matched combat against civilian dwarves, giant peach-faced lovebirds usually win, frequently without any losses. Therefore, armed and experienced dwarves are recommended to encourage giant peach-faced lovebirds to flock elsewhere. Humorously, some dwarves like giant peach-faced lovebirds for their loving nature. Taming these creatures can be very beneficial to your fortress' defense, considering how dangerous they are.

Just remember, as they peck out the eyes of your only woodcutter or fisherman, they're doing it for love. ...And because you smell like beer. Love is only secondary to beer.
