The Jobberknoll was a small, magical, blue speckled bird.[1]

Description

A blue Jobberknoll feather

The Jobberknoll never made any noise until the moment before it dies. It would then release a long scream, which consisted of every sound it ever heard backwards. It lived in northern Europe and North America and fed mainly on small insects.[1] Jobberknoll feathers were used as potion ingredients in Truth serums and Memory Potions.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • 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".
