An enchanting bird from Chile that feasts on gold and silver ores. Its gluttony leads it to eat so much gold and silver that it is unable to fly. The people of Chile follow these birds to find riches. However there is another bird- the wily bird that fascinates its followers with its wings over ravines causing the enticed follower to fall to their death.
