It's design is rooted from the Antillean Crested Hummingbird with their whole body having a mixture of feathers consisting of dark blues and olive drab greens and the body actually being plated with freshly ripped bark, their wings having thorns draped over them, their feet highly sharp obsidian-like claws and their beak inwardly serrated almost akin to teeth.
This menacing and starving creature is Lore's natural predator to Hybees. Often will only a single scout find a nest before their whole flock will descend, hunting each Hybee until their hive is hollowed out and emptied, where not even the larvae remain. A group of Crested Honey Whistlers are called as such because they produce a sound when rushing through the air during a hunt.
