A bird spirit that lived on Mt Katahdin and made cold weather, associated with night, wind, snow, and storms. Apparently it had a moose’s head according to some legends. The only version we’ve been able to find just says that Pomola was large enough to carry off a moose, not that it looks like one. Either way, it definitely is not a creature any human would want to mess with, and the Penobscots and Abenakis avoided climbing to the top of this mountain so as not to disturb it.
