An Animagus is a wizard who can, whenever they so desire, change their physical form into a certain animalistic shape. They cannot choose their shape, but rather it reflects their personality. Third-year students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry are given a lecture and demonstration on Animagi.

It is extremely rare for an Animagus to become a winged creature, and so the few witches or wizards who do possess this gift enjoy it immensely[1].
