Think about it. When you eat a piece of meat, you literally eat a corpse, a dead animal. I’m not saying this to “disgust” you or to convince you of anything, just calling things with their names. We have been using the word “meat” long enough to make us forget it is a dead animal. This animal was alive before, and it was raised, and killed, not in awesome ways. --Laura Marie

Now, when I eat, honestly, I am so much happier to tell myself that this meal didn’t cause any murder, does not contain any blood, cruelty, and that nobody is dead for my palate. It is honestly one of the best feelings in the world. --Laura Marie
Men have decided they have the right to determine which species are for us to love and will be lucky as pets, and which ones are destined to end up in a Filet with sauce and potatoes – or which ones can be used and abused for our own entertainment (like the corrida). But if you like your cat, then you should be able to love the same way a cow or a sheep. There is no superior or inferior specie. No specie that deserves hugs and kisses, and the other the death sentence or torture. I can assure you that EVERY animal can be tamed and become a pet, if you wanted to, just like your cat or your dog. Take at random one cow, or one chicken, destined to be killed in the food industry, and bring it at your home, and treat it like your pet. I promise you will start to discover his personality, get attached to it, want to hug it. You would love them just like your pets. There is absolutely NO difference. --Laura Marie

I personally could talk about birds for hours and never get tired.

Please comment and "like" the blog posts!

So now we got the taxobox and "what order (or family) is it in?" kind of stuff, now let's see what the article needs now. I'll use my friend's Six-toed Grey Heron as an example.

First, we'll add "
{{This is a made-up species}}
" to the page, you know, because you're the one making this up, and a lot times, out of silliness, people look up your made-up bird!

Next, we add the taxobox. We should already know how to do this from the previous post.

Then, we add these to the page:

==Other names==

==Description==
===Similar species===
==Behaviour==
===Diet===
===Calls===
===Reproduction===
==Distribution/habitat==
==References==
==External links==

We also add this to the page:

{{DEFAULTSORT: Heron, Six-toed Grey}}

It looks a bit like this:

[...]
H
Red-tailed Hawk
Grey Heron
Six-toed Grey Heron
Curve-billed Highnose
Jacamar Highnose
Robert's Highnose
K
Black Kite
Black-shouldered Kite
Brahminy Kite
Mississippi Kite
Koehn's Kestrel
[...]

It basically makes it look like an encyclopedic entry. People don't have to scroll through several pages to find a bird that ends in "Heron".

Now we add the projects, since this bird is a heron, it's in Ardeiformes/Ardeidae. It's also a bird, so we add Project Aves to it and it's made-up, so we add Project Made-up Species too.

{{navbox
|header1=Projects
|content1={{Project Aves}}
{{Project Ardeiformes}}
{{Project Ardeidae}}
{{Project Made-up Species}}
}}

I also added a template that contains its genus, Ardea, this can be helpful to people as well.


And now for the categories. Since it was made-up by someone else, add that as the category. This is fairly self-explanatory. It's a heron, its name starts with an S, its name has an adjective in it, and it has the word grey in it and it's found in Devonshire.

==Other names==
None known.

==Description==
A huge heron with unique toe arrangement. No one is sure how it happened. 

It is one of the largest species of heron, being about 40" (101.6cm) tall and 50" (127cm) long. Its wingspan measures 80" (203.2cm).

Males are grey with an orange belly. Females are similar, but lack the orange belly. Both sexes have many long, black plumes that adorn them during the breeding season; they both have golden wings that are "pencilled" in black. They have a long, black streak on the sides of their faces and black streaks or dots (variable) on their throats and necks. Both sexes have dark blue to pale blue eyes.

Very rarely shows albinism, partial albinism or leucism.

Sometimes hybridises with the great blue heron or grey heron.

===Similar species===
Unique. Not even the [[Great Blue Heron]] nor the [[Grey Heron]] have yellow on them.

Its wingspan is comparable to a [[Magnificent Frigatebird]] and its length is comparable to a [[Wandering Albatross]]. It is almost as tall as a [[Secretarybird]].

==Behaviour==
===Diet===
It feeds on fish, amphibians, crayfish, insects, snakes and birds.

===Calls===
Harsh croaking, not unlike that of the great blue or grey herons.

===Reproduction===
Performs an extravagant display, fanning out its beautiful plumes. Occasionally, the bill base may turn purplish-blue. 

Nest is in some of the tallest trees in swamps or other wet areas <ref name="Encyclopedia"/>. Incubates the eggs for an average of 28 days {{Encyclopedia}}. The eggs are pale green to pale olive <ref name="Encyclopedia"/>.

Young fledge in about 68 days.  

==Distribution/habitat==
Found in many wet areas, around lakes, wet fields and sometimes away from water <ref name="Encyclopedia"/>.

==References==
{{Reflist}}

==Based on...==
It is based on a mix of seven different herons. Though I don't remember all of them, one of them might be the great blue heron, which is where some of the info came from.

The idea of this beautiful, handsome bird came from one of my [[User:KingsIndian|friends]]. I thought it was absurd at first, knowing that birds rarely have more than four toes. But I gave in and decided to create it. Its initial design was vastly different from the one shown. Its original wingspan was 145", not 80"! That is ''CRAZILY huge''! (The wingspan of the wandering albatross ''is'' 100-138").
