What's on Anonymous Monk's Head?

It's bothered me for too long now, and I can no longer resist the curiousity. What is on Anonymous Monk's head on his/her homenode pic? I ran a Super Search for "Anonymous Monk" picture head and "Anonymous Monk" hat but came up empty.

To me, it looks like a small dog or, maybe, a bird. I know the answer is going to be obvious and will result in me slapping my forehead, but I just have to know. Am I the only person who (has wondered|is wondering) about this?

    May the sweet bird of wisdom alight in times of confusion and whisper tidbits of knowledge in your ear.

    (But if you still don't get it don't be surprised at a swift kick in the back of the head with cold wet galoshes.)

    Ah, yes. CowboyNeal's penguin hat.

      In fact, that picture used to be moderately famous ... well, in a geeky way: Nitrozac immortalized it a few years back.

      If not P, what? Q maybe?

    To my eye it looks like a crow or vulture.

      Nah, it's a penguin. cowboyneal had the photo and a description on his old site. Now he's gone all MovableType on us and the photo has gone.

    Amazingly when i went to the anonmyous monks node, the unsilohetted version appeared up the top right, and it is indeed a penguin adorning the head of the monk. :)
