Hedgethorn Lammergyre with his bird Plume

Cantationary birds were parrot-like birds with green plumage, a purple crest and a side-biter beak. They were famed for being gifted mimics, often kept as pets by Deepwooders. They were seed-eaters, their beak adapted for eating lufwood seeds.

In Weird New Worlds, Hedgethorn Lammergyre had his bird Plume, while in the Cade Saga, Thorne Lammergyre's lemkin Tak-tak also mimiced.
