Was he the only one who could do something? the only one in a specific place? the only one with a specific quality? a specific talent? a specific skill? Was he the only one who knew something? heard something? saw something? understood something?

Avian:
Domestic? Wild?

songbird? seabird? waterbird? predator? scavenger?

Is the type of bird relevant?
