Item Number: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: All instances of SCP-XXXX Instances SCP-XXXX-4 through -29 are to be stored in a standard Containment locker in the Safe-Class containment wing of Site-78. Instances SCP-XXXX-0 through -3 are to be stored in the SCP-XXXX Research and Development Lab at Site-78. Access to SCP-XXXX is restricted to personnel with Level 3 clearance or higher, unless granted by the SCP-XXXX R&D team led by Dr. F█████. Access request forms (as well as testing applications) are available in front of Dr. F█████'s office at site-78.

As instances of SCP-XXXX are fragile, care must be taken when handling, testing, or transporting the instances. In addition, all SCP-XXXX containment units are to be marked as fragile. In the event of an instance of SCP-XXXX becomes broken outside of testing, personnel are to contact MTF Kappa-7 "Ghost Chickens In The Sky" for re-containment of SCP-XXXX-A. All pieces of SCP-XXXX, especially SCP-XXXX-B must be recovered and stored within the SCP-XXXX research and development lab for continued testing. SCP-XXXX-A are to be contained in Small Incorporeal Entity Vacuum Chambers until a more permanent containment procedure can be implemented.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a set of 29 26 colored glass ornaments, shaped into birds in various natural poses. The glass itself is non-anomalous, and has a faint "cloudy" coloration. These ornaments are hollow, but contain SCP-XXXX-A and SCP-XXXX-B.

SCP-XXXX-A describes Class-B ectomorph entities1 that are contained within SCP-XXXX. Testing with SCP-XXXX-A has revealed that they have the intelligence level of members of the Thrush family . These entities do not require food, water, or sleep; however, they have been observed mimicking resting states and consumption of berries, and will become irritable if not allowed access to either for extended periods of time.

SCP-XXXX-B refers to small particles of plastic2 "glitter" embedded into the glass of SCP-XXXX. These particles consistently reflect or produce white light, varying in intensity depending on the perspective of the viewer. Etched onto each particle of SCP-XXXX-B is a near-microscopic pattern that has been determined to produce a mild hallucinatory effect described as "feeling like I was at home". These hallucinations are caused by proximity to SCP-XXXX-B, although visual and physical contact increases the intensity of the effect. The effect becomes noticeable within five (5) meters of SCP-XXXX-B and will dissipate within thirty (30) seconds of leaving this area of effect.

Addendum XXXX-1: After thorough observation and examination, SCP-XXXX-B's effects are not considered a threat to the work environment. Personnel Working in proximity to SCP-XXXX-B are to notify Dr. F█████, Site-78 medical staff, or the Site-██ HR department if they have concerns about the effect or the work environment.

Discovery: SCP-XXXX was discovered when a team of foundation investigative agents were looking into reports of strange bird activity near the "███████" household. An interview with the family under the guise of a local environmental activist group revealed that the activity started after their █-year-old daughter, Molly, accidentally dropped a bird ornament they had purchased.

Interview Log XXXX-1:

Interviewed: Mark ███████, father of the "███████" family

Interviewer: Agent Rasho, Site specific ID: ███-████-███-████

Forward: Interview was recorded in the "███████" family home via a small, chest-mounted microphone attached to Agent Rasho's clothing. Introductory and irrelevant content has been omitted.

<Begin Log>

Agent Rasho: "How long have you noticed strange behavior from the local birds?"

Mark ███████: "Well I suppose it was strange, but Polly- sorry, that's our name for it- the bird first showed up in early January. I was concerned when I saw a nest in the tree outside made out of shards of glass from our garbage. I tried to knock it down but Polly didn't like that too much.

Agent Rasho: "Oh my! Was it injured at all?"

Mark ███████: "Not as far as I could tell, although i never got a look at her. I just felt wings flapping and heard a sharp caw, so i left it alone. In fact, we've watched the nest for a while but Polly has never been around. I'm not even sure what species it is."

Agent Rasho: "That is strange behavior… Do you have any idea why it might be behaving this way?"

Mark ███████: "It might not be anything, but we think it might have something to do with Mr. C█████. He gave Molly a bird ornament for last Christmas. she broke it when we were putting away the decorations, and now Polly is using it for her home."

Following this interview the "███████" family was deemed not a significant threat to normalcy and therefore not administered amnestics. The instance of SCP-XXXX was designated SCP-XXXX-0 and SCP-XXXX-B-0) Investigation into "Mr. C█████" is ongoing.

The following is restricted to Personnel with Level 3/XXXX clearance and above.

Update: As of 07/██/20██, Three (3) instances of SCP-XXXX have been broken in containment. Two (2) of these instances were broken under controlled testing conditions. One (1) instance was broken during delivery from containment to the site-78 R&D wing (Designated Incident SCP-XXXX-1). MTF Kappa-7 successfully contained the instance of SCP-XXXX-A (Now designated SCP-XXXX-A-3 or "Stan Creden Pruitt")One (1) instance (SCP-XXXX-0 or "Polly") was broken prior to containment. Teams to investigate the complete containment of this instance are a low priority for Site-78 and have been deemed a negligible breach of secrecy by the O5-command.
Current research indicates that SCP-XXXX-B's compulsion effect had apparently affected recently deceased birds, causing their spirits to manifest as SCP-XXXX-A. Research into the application of SCP-XXXX-B to contain ectomorph entities is currently the focus of SCP-XXXX research and development.
