ruby-crested mechanical penguin
Look: Blackened metal feathers on the mechanical bird's back contrast against the light silver on its belly. Two bright onyx beads form curious eyes for the penguin, set just below two red cottony feathers on either side of its head.

The mechanical penguin's head is loose, bobbing back and forth on the end of a wire spring.
