Byangoma are birds who call tell fortunes, though they are renown for their finicky nature, helping only those they deem worthy.  Scholars have debated for centuries whether the Byangoma are intelligent beings, or if they merely have a magical instinct.  The species originated in modern Bangladesh.

Every person experiences this fortune telling differently.  Some claim to hear a voice, others receive visions.   The most common experience is to hear the birds song, and suddenly have an intuition about a future event.
