The Jobberknoll was a small, magical, blue speckled bird that never made any noise until the moment before it died. It would then let out a long scream, which consisted of every sound it ever heard backwards. Jobberknoll feathers were used in Truth Serums and Memory Potions. Its lived in northern Europe and North America and fed mainly on small insects.[1]

Behind the scenes

Jobberknoll feather
  • According to Samuel Johnson, a jobberknoll is a loggerhead, a blockhead.
  • The description of the jobberknoll — that it repeats everything it has ever heard before it dies — is perhaps a reference to the old myth that swans were supposed to sing a beautiful melody at the moment of their deaths, hence, "swan song."
