Seabirds with long pointed wings and huge bills.

Flocks of giant storm petrels transport the younger students between their homes and Mahoutokoro School every day (Pm).

Commentary

Notes

While petrels are fairly large birds, even the "giant" ones are not big enough to carry people (Wikipedia: Petrel). These may be a specially bred magical species, even though they not listed in the textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
