'The Thunderbird is a magical American bird closely related to the phoenix...'

Extract from History of Magic in North America, 1920s Wizarding America

Shikoba Wolfe, who was of Choctaw descent, was primarily famous for intricately carved wands containing Thunderbird tail feathers (the Thunderbird is a magical American bird closely related to the phoenix). Wolfe wands were generally held to be extremely powerful, though difficult to master. They were particularly prized by Transfigurers.
