Werebirds are a species of Werebeast who have birds as their totemic animal connection. Most werebirds are able to shift into a bestial and/or half-bestial form at will. Some will also shift if certain triggers — such as a particular moon phase or becoming angry — occur.
In human form, werebirds are indistinguishable from an average Human. They may have bird-like features, such as a "beak-like" nose or notably beady eyes, or a bird-like disposition, but they are human otherwise. In bird form, werebirds are physically no different than an average bird. Mentally, though, they still retain their personhood.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
Totemically, all werebeasts can sense one another with their normal senses. If you are a werebeast and you spot another werebeast, you can tell right away. Same with smell, hearing, and even taste, a werebeast can smell, hear or taste another werebeast.
