The bird-like creature is a very large beast. It was large enough for San to be able to stand on top its head, and was even then dwarfed in comparison. It had a very large wingspan which had distinctive markings that combined near the middle. It also had two jet-like pistons near the end of its body, with two tails attached. It has an orange face, green feathers and white skin.
It showed the ability to shoot explosive feathers from its body with almost pin-point accuracy. The creature also has jet-like modifications that allow it to have short bursts of speed.
Team Kakashi is sent on a mission to follow the tracks of the missing kekkei genkai-wielding ninja. While flying on his own ink bird, Sai gets attacked by the bird-like creature, which destroys his bird and makes him fall. It then attacks Gaara and other Sunagakure ninja on their way to meet with Tsunade. While later chasing Naruto Uzumaki and Sakura Haruno, Team Asuma gets attacked by the bird. It is later defeated by Chōji Akimichi after using Super Multi-Size Technique to smash it into a wall, presumably killing it in the process.
