Reminds me of those memes where someone googles his/her/itself and finds completely different results. For example:
You see a Google image results page with a bunch of iPods, Macs, iPads, etc. The next panel shows an apple sitting behind the keyboard, saying "what the heck is this crap??" (or something a little stronger language-wise).
Weird... suddenly, eating an apple sounds really good right about now ._.

Greek Mythology. They are the creatures that lure sailors to crash their ships into the rocks.
On old Pottery they are depicted as Bird monsters with human female features. In the story The Odyssey, That is what they are.
But now'a days. Because of the whole drowning theme. Sirens are drawn as mermaids.
But in my own little fantasy world Mermaids and sirens are two different things and I wish I could find more Bird like sirens...
I guess I could just look up Harpy, but I kinda figured those were a bit different too, Ya know?

This happens to me all the time. Then I have to keep trying to narrow it down and it just doesn't work.
The worst thing, though, is on the other side of it. If I look up 'android' on google I expect to see some androids, but the majority of the pics are about the phone...O.o;

I'm surprised that actual sirens didn't show up in your search, you know, like police sirens, or tornado siren, etc.
I'm afraid I haven't heard of siren bird-like creatures,
where are those from?
I do the same for inspiration. Music that reminds me of my charas (allows me to picture them better, personality wise). Drawings that give me better ideas how to draw what's in my head.
I don't like when I look up Sirens and It's a bunch of Mermaids and not the bird like monsters I want...
