They had two eyes, two wings, a beak, a prehensile tail, and a gold and brown plumage. In fact, convorees were very similar in appearance to Kiros birds from the planet Kiros, who also possessed grabbing tails. The two species could be differentiated by the fact that Kiros birds had purple and blue feathers instead of gold and brown.
In the jungles of Wasskah, convorees worked in pairs to fend off predators such as momongs, lifting those animals into the air together and then dropping them from the treetops. The convoree themselves fed mostly on insects and small rodents.
Behind the scenesEdit
Convorees are named after Dave Filoni's wife Anne Convery. When asked about the bird's appearance in "The Mystery of Chopper Base" and "Twilight of the Apprentice", he responded there was a deeper meaning behind its presence, finally acknowledging "In some ways, I could say that it's a messenger, it's an observer. It is definitely something. And I would suggest – I would rather have fans debate – but I would suggest to say that whatever that thing is an avatar of has actually appeared in the animated Star Wars universe before. So decrypt from there... Have a fun summer!"
