The Birds of Prey, also known as The Birds in some cases, is the name given to a large number of birds commonly seen under the dual command of Lord Shen and the Grand Duke of Owls. They are supporting characters in the abandoned story The Puppy and the Peacock, minor antagonists in War of the Wild and possible supporting characters in Search for the Sword.

Description

The Duke and Lord Shen

The bird's leaders, Lord Shen and the Grand Duke of Owls.

In general, the birds of prey are as their name suggests birds of prey such as eagles and kites. At least, this is only in War of the Wild but in other literature appearances they are simply known as "The Birds" and undergo numerous changes:

In The Puppy and the Peacock, the birds are actually a lot more diverse with "normal" birds being included such as magpies, crows and ravens and are depicted as having taken over the dog pound which houses Lord Shen, the Grand Duke of Owls, Meowrice and Balto.

In War of the Wild however, they are a lot more uniform and in this story, only the birds of prey appear. These birds are largely composed of eagles, vultures, buzzards, ospreys, kestrels, hawks, kites, sparrowhawks, harriers, falcons, and merlins.

Most of the birds are also used in the World War X series for The Invaders and even some friendly aliens in the World War X series. In the Anthro Saga, the birds are even more diverse even including flightless birds such as emus.

The birds' motives are to a degree could be described as being the motivation for the aliens because wherever they are based, the birds have taken it over; these include the Dog Pound in the abandoned story The Puppy and the Peacock and the Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Search for the Sword.

While the birds of prey are depicted as hostile to humanity in the World War X series, birds that appear only in Search for the Sword are used for the basis of friendly aliens except for penguins, parrots, magpies, crows and macaws.
