A scrap of wrinkled parchment is inscribed in dark 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: Francisco Preston (Magic lineup, Dad)
Ornithomantic assignation: greater rhea (Rhea americana) - large flightless ratite native to South America.
Appearance is consistent with expectations. A large bird nearly 5 feet tall, with tattered grey plumage bearing rich brown undertone. Exudes a very welcoming aura. Slight associated aroma of barbecue, flickering between hamburgers, hot dogs, and bratwurst. (and mustard)
Individual is otherwise difficult to identify in comparison to other rheas. This species is well known for its strong paternal drives, with male birds incubating and raising multiple clutches, and freely adopting any unattended chicks they may encounter. Individual in question strongly aligned with these characteristics! I confess, I have struggled to not refer to this individual as Dad throughout the writing of this report. Individual associates with other teammates in a protective manner, observably proud of their accomplishments and supportive during their struggles.
Migration status: nonmigratory (as of yet)
Ley line attunement: well done.

The parchment is burned beyond these words.
