Diricawl

This plump, flightless bird escapes danger by vanishing in a burst of feathers. Muggles knew this bird as the “dodo” and believe that it is extinct, being unaware of its ability to vanish at will. Because this belief (and associated guilt) has spurred more enlightened attitudes toward the animal world among many Muggles, wizards have encouraged it (FB).
