head = 9cm
tail = 9 + 0.5*(9+tail)
tail = 9 + 4.5 + (tail/2)
(tail/2) = 13.5
tail = 27
Total bird length = tail + body + head = 27 + (9 + 27) + 9 = 72cm

head=9
tail=9+body/2
body=head+tail
body=9+(9+body/2)
body=18+18+body/2
2body=36+body
body=36
tail=9+36/2
tail=24
the bird size is =(head+tail+body)=(9+24+36)=69cm

My head and tail both equal are,
My middle slender as a bee.
Whether I stand on head or heel
Is quite the same to you or me.
But if my head should be cut off,
The matter's true, though passing strange
Directly I to nothing change.
What am I?
