The Human-faced Bird (unofficial name) is an enemy in Contra ReBirth.

Description[]

A small crow-like creature that digs through trash. When it turns to face the player's screen, an eerie humanoid face with ominous red eyes is shown. It generally ignores the player and focuses on its garbage rummaging in the background, but when the screen scrolls a little further right, just before the creature disappears out of sight, it takes flight and briefly chases the player before eventually soaring offscreen and away. The bird being prone to making circles, and its somewhat erratic pattern, makes it a hard target to pin down. On harder difficulties, the bird becomes more focused on the player, tending to fly toward them more directly.

This creature is seen as the successor to the Man-faced mutts, as both behave nearly identical and appear within city stages, with both being Earth animals bearing a frightening humanoid face. However, the bird has the ability to fly, allowing it to reach players on higher elevations. This makes the Human-faced Bird a larger threat than its predecessor creature.
