The Gawky Birds are large-scale rod-puppets, originally conceived for a live Broadway revue to be performed at New York's Lincoln Center.
They were later used in occasional production numbers on The Muppet Show, including a song and dance with Bruce Forsyth in episode 113.
The Gawky Birds stand 11 feet tall, and are the largest Muppets along with the Bossmen.
