The Liver bird is the symbol of the English city of Liverpool. Normally represented as a cormorant with a frond in its mouth, the bird has been Liverpool’s symbol since at least the mid-14th century. The Liver bird took on mythical importance in the early 20th century after the 1911 construction of the Royal Liver Building in downtown Liverpool. Two bronze birds—one male, one female—sit atop the building and are considered protectors of both the city and the seaport.
