(RNN) -  Protesters placed a giant inflatable rooster - with President Donald Trump's signature hairstyle - to call Trump "chicken" for not releasing his tax returns. 

The bird's appearance caused an uproar on social media. 

 At least one enthusiast offered a close-up view. 

It's not the first time this bird has made an appearance in recent months. In April, a 13-foot-tall version of the chicken accompanied protesters at tax marches across the U.S.

A Chinese manufacturer released the inflatables in January to usher in the Year of the Rooster. The company commissioned a Seattle-based designer, who claimed that the resemblance to the president was purely coincidental. 

The chicken has its own Twitter account at @TaxMarchChicken.
