Hook-tailed Flyers

"Three Hook-tailed Flyers burst out of the foliage and startled the Forest Sliders."

The Hook-tailed Flyer is a fast-moving flyer from the plains and Pocket Forests of Darwin IV.

When they halt their flying, hook-tails drop to plaque-bark tree branches, hook them, and dangle inverted, folding their leathery wings around themselves.

Sometimes, a pinging flight of hook-tails rises noisily from the trees and skims away toward the open grasslands and travels far in order to find other pocket forests to roost and find food in.
