Convorees (singular: convor)[4], also known as Trandoshan birds[5], were a species of beautiful, regal, and elegant owl.[6] They were native to the moon Wasskah,[3] but could be found in several places across the galaxy, including the planets Atollon, Malachor,[7] and Takodana.[8]

They had two eyes, two wings, a beak,[4] a prehensile tail, and a gold and brown plumage. In fact, convorees were very similar in appearance to Kiros birds from the planet Kiros, who also possessed grabbing tails. The two species could be differentiated by the fact that Kiros birds had purple and blue feathers instead of gold and brown.[2]

Convorees were popular as pets throughout the galaxy.[2] During the Clone Wars, a convor was being sold for 60 credits in the town of Pons Ora on the planet Abafar.[5]

Convorees were sneaky birds[9] and in the jungles of Wasskah they worked in pairs to fend off predators such as momongs, lifting those animals into the air together and then dropping them from the treetops.[2] The convoree themselves fed mostly on insects and small rodents.[4]

Visitors who returned from Malachor reported glimpses of convorees.[10]

The birds had a strong connection both to the Force and to Ahsoka Tano.[3] The convor Morai had a spiritual connection with the Daughter,[11] and, after her death, was a known companion of Tano.[12]

The slang phrase "chopped convor liver" was used to denote a person who felt they were getting less attention or consideration than someone else, as in "Do I look like chopped convor liver?"[13]

Behind the scenes[]

Convorees are named after Dave Filoni's wife E. Anne Convery. When asked about the bird's appearance in "The Mystery of Chopper Base" and "Twilight of the Apprentice," he responded there was a deeper meaning behind its presence: "In some ways, I could say that it's a messenger, it's an observer. It is definitely something. And... I would rather have fans debate—but I would suggest... that whatever that thing is an avatar of has actually appeared in the animated Star Wars universe before. So decrypt from there."[14]
