They have brighter red patches found on the shoulders and sometimes the head. Their glossy feathers reflect strongly in daylight. The plumage is peppered with small dark spots. Their beaks and claws are dark red to almost black.
The Birds of Aeustras where once common thrush like birds. Through the druidic magic of the treant Aeustras he awakened their intelligence and new purpose. They once serve as the treants eyes and ears. After the treant Aeustras was slain they often adopt a new patron and gather info for them or just gossip with any one that happens to pass by. They do this out of a need for a greater purpose. Once in their life they migrate to the fallen treant Aeustras’s body to pay homage.
The Birds of Aeustras use their long sharp beak to peck at foes. If one is wounded they others swarm in and attack in force.
They speak Common and Sylvan.
