Burd is a left-handed (left winged?) psychologist exploring the active role genetics could play on the advancement of birdbrainpower. Burd has an identical mirror image twin called Burt. Although they share the same DNA and an unfortunate common ancestry, Burd is very relieved that Burt has his own fingerprints and statue stool samples. Nobody has (or cares to admit they have) seen Burt in years. Burd believes he may find Burt without the help of a detective one day. He is often quoted as saying: “The purpose of all this pulp psychology is to give me a wholly, jolly hint of where Burt is – although I don’t consciously admit to care”.
