Is ''Big Bird'' a real bird?
Big Bird is really just a string puppet. It is just for kids. Just like Elmo, Oscar, Telly, Bert, and every other muppet is just string puppets. P.S Its really true. Big Bird is so large, that he is not a string puppet- he is a costume worn by a Muppeteer- usually Caroll Spinney. There is a good Wikipedia article on Big Bird. And although I am a grandfather, I still like Big Bird. Whenyou see him, remember there is a nice guy in there, making you smile.
