Can go on your shoulder and be used to knock other players off of tames with a stun effect that lasts for 10 seconds. Although they look like birds they can't fly up to riders on tames like rexes or spinos. In order for them to reach those riders you'll need to throw it off your shoulder while whistling "attack your target"
I use mine as a living flash bang (well minus the bang) just whistle Attack on the rider and this little guy knocks the rider off, blinds them and stuns them. Great for protecting yourself if you don’t have a mount
