The first rule of hipster art—”put a bird on it”—doesn’t just apply to tote bags and teapots anymore. Now you can put a birds on celebrities, too.

Celebirding is a single-serve Tumblr that meshes the names of celebrities with the names of birds, places their famous heads on birds’ bodies, and makes you wonder why you didn’t think of it first. The blog started with a sole post in February but restarted on Wednesday with a flurry of more than 30 posts.

Thanks to the Celebirding-created equation of name transmorphosis, Sean Hen (Sean Penn), Owl Pacino (Al Pacino), and our favorite, Whippoorwill.i.am (will.i.am) have all had their heads placed on to the bodies of birds.

Of course, the formula of “celebrities + verb” isn’t unique. Other Tumblrs have combined celebrities with bread and googly eyes.

Here are our four more of our favorite celebrity fowl:
