Is it a bird?

This lawnmower is not exactly doing what is was designed for.

A lawnmower is a machine (electric or mechnical) used to cut grass to an even length. It was invented in Britain in 1830 by Edwin Beard Budding, primarily to cut the lawn on sports pitches and expansive gardens. Since many sports had just been invented in Britain that required a flat soft ground (such as croquet, tennis, football and rugby), a more efficient way of making grass a uniform length was needed, and so the lawn mower was born. Previously, grass was cut by hand using a scythe.
