The herling is a small bird about the size of a housecat. They are mostly harmless, but are often pests because of their tendency to steal and hoard shiny objects. A herling will take any object that catches their eye, including jewelry, coins, pencils, pens, forks, spoons, knives, scissors, and anything else they can carry. They usually hide these objects in the hollows of trees or other dark recesses of their environment. They are also known for the bright red feathers that emit a slight luminescent glow in low light.
