A report, master.

Target lock: Thunder Keese

Found in desert habitats, these winged monsters are attracted to dark places, such as caves. Their internal organs generate electricity for attacking prey.

They often gather in colonies, are active at night, and sleep in the day. Those who come too close and awaken them often fall victim to attack.

Thunder Keese are similar to the fiery variant of Fire Keese, but differ as they have electrified bodies as their main form of defense. They inhabit the Lanayru Desert area, and like other electrified enemies in that region, they produce small bursts of electricity that will stun and harm Link if he strikes one while it is shrouded in electricity. Though Thunder Keese are weak, they can be dangerous in large groups as they may constantly electrocute Link, giving him little opportunity to defend himself. A safe and effective way to eliminate them is to use the Shield Bash technique, knocking them to the ground, then finishing them with the Fatal Blow.

The electricity that engulfs the bodies of these bat-like Keese makes them more dangerous than the standard type. They're capable of shocking anything they touch.
