Transforms small objects into birds
The Avifors Spell (Avifors) is a transformation spell which changes small objects or beasts into birds or flocks of birds in a burst of electric blue light.
Avifors should not be confused with the Bird-Conjuring Charm, whose incantation is a base in the etymology of this transfigurative charm.
When used offensively, as in dueling, a jet of blue light will shoot from the caster's wand and hit the target, which will erupt into a burst of electric-blue light and a flock of black bats, which promptly will fly away.
From Latin avis meaning bird, and "fors" (a suffix often used in transfiguration spells) is Latin for "chance, luck, fortune".
