姑获鸟 Ubume

姑获鸟

《古小说钩沈》: “姑获鸟夜飞昼藏,盖鬼神类。衣毛为飞鸟,脱毛为女人……鸟无子,喜取人子养之,以为子。”

When a woman loses her life in childbirth, her spiritual attachment itself becomes this ghost. Ubume likes to take others’ babies as her own. It appears both in Chinese and Japanese mythology. She is like a bird but when she takes off her feather, she becomes a woman.

Ubume is a monster in Gujian Qitan. Her appearance is pretty much like what is described in ancient books.
