I believe it's a crane in the background. At other points around that scene, you can see the same type of bird walking around. At the "hanging" part, I think it's a crane leaning it's head down (to eat or something), then raising it back up.

Yes, I read that legend to.

Director's son, one of the munchkins, someone falling on the set...depends on where you hear the rumor.
