The Anvelos is a strong Bird Wyvern first introduced in Monster Hunter Y. It can be fought in Low Rank, High Rank, Gou Rank, and G Rank Quests.
Anvelos is very similar to the real life osprey. It is brown in color, with brown and white head feathers, a white underside, and black scales covering its legs. It also has blue eyes, a short, vane-like tail, quills on its wings, and two horn-like feathers on the sides of its head, as well as back feathers that could puff up when it is enraged. As well as this, it has large wings, a hooked beak, semi-long legs, and a mid-sized head with a hooked beak.
It prefers warmer areas, so it can be found in areas like the Tropics and Verdant Hills.

This attack inflicts Waterblight.
Leaping Surge: When in an underwater area, Anvelos will dive into the water before leaping out and launching a few water balls at any nearby hunters; after that, it will flap violently three times, causing a large tidal wave to form and hit the shore.

This attack does moderate damage.
Quest: Birds of a Feather
Location: Deserted Island Area 6
Synopsis: A Qurupeco flies into the area, with the hunter chasing after it. Once it lands, it expands its gular sac, and a loud, bird-like screech erupts from its mouth, surprising the hunter. After a few seconds, the same scream sounds in the distance, and a large, eagle-like Bird Wyvern flies down from the skies and attempts to grab the hunter with its claws, scaring the Qurupeco away for a bit. However, he/she dodges the wyvern's talons just in time, and it lands on the ground and taunts.
Quest: Black Flood
Location: Tropics Area 11
Synopsis: It is a dark and stormy night in the Tropics, and a dark, bird-like figure can be seen in the distance. Soon, the figure advances towards the ground, revealing itself to actually be the same eagle-like Bird Wyvern. The wyvern then stops and hovers 8 meters above the ground, flaps two times, twirls around while launching a circular row of water balls, dives down onto the ground, and throws some quills before pulling its head back and emitting a loud screech.
