My entry to COW #80; the Stormfinch

The Stormfinch is one of natures truly great marvels. This bird, related to the vampire finch, stores static electricity, which is created when it flies, in lobes located in his legs. It can discharge this electricity through its talons, enabling the bird to kill smaller birds and kill birds up to 5 times its own weight, like the pearled crow in this artists rendition.
The Stormfinch hunts in flocks of 5 or 6 birds. After stunning their prey they feed on its blood. Unlike those of it`s cousin, the vampire finch, the victims of the Stormfinch rarely survive.

Im not to keen on the lightning around its talons but itll have to do.
