Bird-bears (Arctavidae) are a family of large heavily built flightless predatory birds descended from Skuas native to Antarctica. They have completely lost their wings and move about on two strong legs. They live in tropical, sub-tropical, temperate and coniferous forests and tundra preying upon herbivorous flightless birds and mammals, which they ambush and then kill with powerful bites of their hatchet-like beak. They are solitary and individuals require large territories, females being larger than males and so have larger territories. When courting females males build a semi-circular structure of rocks, branches, leaves and bones around a recently killed prey  animal which he offers to the female. If she is pleased with his offering she will allow him to mate with her. She will then lay a large single egg which she diligently cares for until her offspring reaches maturity.

The species are:    

Kabuki-faced Bird-bear. (Arctavis kabukiops) Lives in temperate and mountain forests. Its upper side is red-brown with a pale yellow to white underside while its face is white with three or four symmetrical black spots on either side. Males are 1.6m tall and females are 2m tall.

Lesser Mountain Bird-bear (Orarctavis minor) Lives above the timberline on mountains. Its upper side is dark grey while its underside is light grey with dark grey speckles. Males are 1.2m tall and females are 1.3m tall.  

Greater Mountain Bird-bear (Oractavis major) Lives above the timberline on mountains. The front half of its body and all of is back is light grey while the back half of its body and its haunches are dark grey. Males are 1.4m tall and females are 1.6m tall.

Stripe-necked Bird-bear (Melanopteryx vergacollum) Lives in tropical forests. It is black with thin white stripes along its neck and the front of its chest. Males are 1.1m tall and females are 1.4m tall.

Golden-shouldered Bird-bear (Melanopteryx chrysoscapula) Lives in tropical and subtropical forests. It is black with a golden patch over its shoulders and down its sides. Males are 1.2m tall and females are 1.5m tall.

Polar Bird-bear (Avinanuq albopteryx) Lives on tundras and in coniferous forests. It is light brown in summer and white in winter. Males are 2.4m tall and females are 2.7m tall.

Great Shaggy Bird-bear (Australorex hirsutus) Lives in temperate and mountain forests. It has a brown shaggy coat. Males are 3.6m tall and females are 4.6m tall.
The Crab-eating Finch (Cancriphagospiza virgapectus) is a species of finch native to the mangrove forests of the Galapagos islands. It spends most of its time on the ground or in the water, returning to the trees only to sleep and nest, hunting for crabs. Both genders are  entirely light grey in colour with males having three horizontal black stripes along their chest. Both genders are similar in size too, ranging between 13 and 17cm in length. They are solitary and congregations rarely occur, coming together only to mate. Males present females with crab claws and legs, puffing up their chest feathers and vigorously shaking their head.  Females lay 2-3 eggs in nests which she raises with her mate.
The Sea Snail-eating Finches (Thalassocochleaphagospiza sp) are a genus of Finches native to the Galapagos islands. There are two species; the Mangrove Sea Snail-eating Finch (T. polyanulus), and the Beach Sea Snail-eating Finch (T. fulvus). They feed in much the same way as their close relative the Snail-eating Finch except they feed on aquatic and amphibious snails, wading and even swimming in search of prey. In the Beach Sea Snail-eating Finch both genders have light brown bodies, with tawny underwings, undersides and heads, while in the Mangrove Sea Snail-eating Finch both genders are entirely tawny brown with the male having small light grey rings in two parallel rows going down their backs and light grey speckles on the ends of their primary wing feathers. Both genders of both species are similar in size, ranging between 8 and 10cm in length. While males of both  species present females with fragments of snail shells, male Beach Sea Snail-eating Finches bob enthusiastically up and down, male Mangrove Sea Snail-eating finches bow down, spread their wings and “shuffle” around potential mates. Female Mangrove Sea Snail-eating Finches make nests in the branches of mangrove trees, laying 2-4 eggs which she and her mate raise. Beach Sea Snail-eating Finches make nests in coastal forests, laying 2-5 eggs which she and her mate raise
The Snail-eating Finch (Cochleaphagospiza canitiacephalus) is a species of Finch native to the forested island of the Galapagos archipelago. It lives mostly on the ground, sleeping and nesting being the only times it goes into low trees and bushes, hunting for snails. When it finds a snail it picks it up in its beak and repeatedly hits it against a rock or similar hard object until the shell cracks. Both genders have brown bodies with tawney underwings, but their heads are where they differ. The heads of females are a light grey while those of males are a darker almost blue grey. Both genders are of a similar size too, ranging between 9 and 12cm in length. Although solitary, small congregation are common and it is at these that males often court females, offering     fragments of snail shells while chirping and hopping enthusiastically. Females lay 2 to 5 eggs which she and her mate raise together.
Update Ultron’s origins: Since Ant-Man doesn’t come out until after Age of Ultron and features Scott Lang, Hank Pym probably isn’t going to be the inventor of Ultron. Instead he will be invented by Tony Stark, S.H.I.E.L.D, or both. A throw-away line referencing Hank Pym being Ultrons inventor, such as “Hank Pym came up with this forty-seven years ago”, would also link to Ant-Man.

Wakanda and other locations: Age of Ultron is confirmed to feature multiple location around the world and even filmed in a location in Africa, so why not show a scene of Wakanda. Presumably Ultron’s plan to save humanity from itself will reach beyond America so a scene showing Ultron Drones marching upon Wakanda, and other locations, would show the grandeur of Ultron’s attack and provide fans with a wonderful plethora of Easter eggs. Other locations which could be Easter eggs during this scene include; Hell’s Kitchen, London and Attilan.

The Netflix shows: Marvel needs to hype up its new shows, especially Daredevil, so a reference or two Newspaper articles or internet articles about Fisk Industries and/or one of Matt Murdoch’s cases and a Heroes for Hire advertisement would be a good idea.

Ultron to kill an Avenger (And they stay dead): There are several reason why Ultron should kill an Avenger. One; It will establish Ultron’s character and the serious threat he poses to the Avengers and the world. Two; It will keep the film fresh in a genre where films aren’t brave enough to kill main characters. Three; the Avengers are getting pretty crowded, and if Marvel wants to introduce Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel and Black Panther to the ranks, characters are going to have to die. I  imagine Captain America, Hawkeye of Iron Man to be the late Avenger.

Doctor Strange revealed in mid or post-credit scene: Doctor Strange is one of Marvel’s most anticipated movies and with the casting of Joaquin Phoenix all but confirmed a character reveal is in order. Wong enters the loft of the Sanctum Sanctorum, briefly looks up, and continues on with his chores. The camera rises to reveal a levitating and meditating Doctor Strange. By showing Doctor Strange meditating it is hinted that his astral form is off on some other-worldly business, explaining his absence of Age of       Ultron.
