Enough of the gout-tastic words. Here's a lovely word that I may well be able to use a bit more frequently:

volucrine adj relating to birds, bird-like. [Origin from Latin volucris a bird, from volare to fly] Chambers, 1998

What a splendid word. Very noble. The polar opposite of chiragra, in fact.
