A scrap of weathered parchment is inscribed in ashen ink by the Augur's hand
A collection of these notes was located in a file cabinet within the Yellowstone National Park Ballpark offices, all sharing a similar handwriting and purpose. Each note describes a member of the Yellowstone Magic, in synchronicity with a known reality counterpart, but as a particular species of bird. It remains unclear why the Augur is scrying these particular ornithomancies and what purpose they may serve, but the findings are dutifully recorded and cataloged when new ones are discovered.
Scrying target: Bonk Jokes (Magic lineup, skeletal amalgamation)
Ornithomantic assignation: many disparate identities exist within the target, circling around the core, but the preferred presentation is as bearded vulture or lammergeier (Gypaetus barbatus) - a remarkable Old World vulture with a diet of bones.
Appearance is distinct within the shifting shadows that signify other identifications within the system. Massive bird of prey with 10ft wingspan, brown wings, a yellow-white face and underside, and a v-shaped marking of black down the face that meets and terminates beneath the lower mandible, with trailing feathers representing the nominative "beard." However, appearance also shifts to that of the skeletal system of said bird, with a low red glow within the skull. In periods of flux the bird shifts rapidly in shape. In my observations I have recorded a white-throated magpie-jay, a southern white-faced owl, a Blackburnian warbler, a tourmaline sunangel, and a ruddy duck.
Collective is silent, using their immense size as an intimidation factor in defense of their territory. Collective also engages in the activity well-known of the species: that of arising to great height with a large scavenged bone in talons, and then dropping it to fall upon rocks, where it may break apart into manageable pieces. The pieces are then retrieved on the ground and swallowed whole. In this case, the bones are integrated into the overall identifiable signature, and may indicate the creation of a new aspect. Said aspects may shift to become the primary presentation at times, but as the recording of each aspect's identifiers and habits will occupy far more than one evening, I shall abstain, and merely report upon the overall front that is presented.
Of important note is the ancient Greek name for this bird, which is ossifrage, a name which means "bone breaker." Of additional important note is that the ancient Greeks regarded the ossifrage as one of the few birds regarded as truth-tellers to the sooth-sayers.
Arachismic-legumic reactivity: unknown.
Migration status: nonmigratory (as of yet)
Ley line attunement: osteogenic.
This one is a very new construct, assembled by the "Wise" in great haste. I have a great many suggestions for him, which he would no doubt spurn. However, he has overlooked the very important fact that his newest construct is-
The ink is too smeared to read beyond those words.
