What consequence would be provoked on perspective if we transgendered the National BIRD?
17th century rooster turned into a 21st century woodepecker.
The bird in popular representation shapes the myth in which a man's innocence is confirmed by a dead crowing rooster.
Being wrongly accused in trial, a pilgrim seems to be condemned by a false sentence. During judgement the man claims that upon his hanging the dead rooster, cooked on a plate, will crow in support of his innocence.
When the man was hung, rooster rose from the dead so justice and honesty could prevail. The knot on the neck of the pilgrim was weak, he escaped death sentenced by men and he was immediately granted freedom from accusations.
The rooster in this myth is not dead nor alive. It's watching and serving.
CHANGING THE COCK TALE
The woodpecker of Barcelos is a new race to associate to other eternal concerns. The woodpecker hammers its way in to occupy justice and honesty of purpose. Hard nest is the hardest.
