Kirinki

   Small scarlet-plumaged birds of Númenor.
   -----
   Tiny scarlet birds found in Númenor.
   One of the many species of birds found in Númenor, and doubtless Aman, that were not known in Middle-earth. The kirinki were said to be smaller than wrens, with bright scarlet feathers, and voices so high that they could hardly be heard by Men.
