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 ten 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". As a savage exotic mount that can fly, they may cause problems on the very small chance of giant bushtit equipped elven siege.
