Murrelet with a Mohawk?

He's small, he's brown, he's mad as hell....

I recently came across a stash of old cartoons by Lynda Barry--cartoons I clipped from City Paper in Washington, DC back in the 1980s.  The "Poodle with a Mohawk" was one of my favorites.

And I couldn't help but see the resemblance to my favorite bird, the marbled murrelet. Here is the downy chick, drawn by artist Paul Harris Jones, that adorns the front cover of my book Rare Bird: Pursuing the Mystery of the Marbled Murrelet. Below this, the "downy" poodle.
