A Lightning Bird is a Light Fae species.
A Lightning Bird travels by lightning. It is invisible to other Fae and can be seen and heard only by humans (she talks to female humans only). They like to steal shiny objects from those they help.
Lightning Birds hate it when people stare into their eyes for too long. Their eggs are powerful and witch doctors swear by them to find lost or stolen goods.
Lightning Birds are based on the creatures of the same name from South African tribal folklore.
