{{I=Epilogue ChangAndTheBird.jpg=200=left=Chang explains the nature of the "hy-birds." {{crossref}}}}
The birds' wings span 16 feet, and their cry sounds like the name "Hurley".http//ll.media.abc.com/podcast/audio/abc/Lostpodcast_20070504.mp3 Lost podcast on abc.com DVDs even subtitle one's cry as "Hurley", but Sawyer mocked Hurley for noting the resemblance. {{crossref}} DHARMA kept the birds at the Hydra station, which featured large aviary cages. {{crossref}}

Hurley's first sight of one of them convinced him that whoever came up with the name Dark Territory was "a genius." He heard it shortly afterward, before and during the smoke monster's attack. {{crossref}} A bird appeared again during the survivors' A-Missions to rescue Walt. Michael tried to shoot it, revealing that Jack had unloaded his gun before giving it to him. {{crossref}}
