This is a "Miniature Venomcloud" from the the dragon breed generator. [link]
Miniven is about the size of a crow and is highly toxic. It doesn't use its poison much for hunting because it mainly eats fruits and bugs. Venom comes out of its skin, mainly near its bright feathers, and when threatened it will shake to form a cloud of poison to protect itself. Since it's so often exuding and coated in poison, the miniven will kill plants if it stays near them for too long and must be on the move often so it doesn't destroy much of its forest home. It flits nervously from branch to branch and has a nest made of stones. Minivens are often actually as nervous as they appear, convincing themselves predators are after them because of how delicious they are. Of course they get this idea because they like the taste of their venom coating, so they're probably wrong.
