Stymphalian birds are man-eating creatures that roam the Kalabrian forest. They are capable of tracking their prey from even the slightest hint of blood. Jason, Pythagoras, and Hercules were forced to evade the Stymphalian birds through the Kalabrian forest while on their way to the Temple of Hecate, which was made difficult due to a mosquito bite sustained by Hercules. (The Grey Sisters)
The Stymphalian birds (Greek: Στυμφαλίδες ὄρνιθες, Stymphalídes órnithes) are man-eating birds with beaks of bronze, sharp metallic feathers they could launch at their victims, and poisonous dung. They were pets of Ares, the god of war. They migrated to a marsh in Arcadia to escape a pack of wolves. There they bred quickly and swarmed over the countryside, destroying crops, fruit trees, and townspeople.
- The Stymphalian birds as depicted in Atlantis bear a resemblence to pterodactyls, which died out before the advent of humanity.
