The Saewehna Jungle is an area on the southern end of the Isle of the Four Winds - south of the settlement of Mist Harbor.

Cliff Diving

One can jump from the plateau on the second level of the waterfall and land in the Lagoon below.

>jump plateau
You step out onto the plateau and adjust your footing upon the slick rocks.  Gazing down at the lagoon below, you take a deep breath, arch your body, and dive off in a single motion.

Air whistles in your ears and through your hair as you attempt to keep your body in a straight formation, hands pointed and together, eyes closed.

[Saewehna Lagoon]
Lines of ivory foam cling to the edge of the shoreline, intermingling with the strands of flora that flourish on the shore of the lagoon.  The trees framing the lagoon provide some respite from the heat of the sun as the branches of a few extend out over the water to cast shadows over the surface.  A decorated bamboo hut occupying the majority of the shore can be seen as well as a pathway providing a means to travel around the lagoon.
Obvious paths: north, southwest, west, northwest
Your entire form is enveloped in a splash of cool water as you enter the lagoon!  Waves of the refreshing liquid ripple over your body as you immediately push yourself to the surface and catch your breath.

Bird Watching

There are four macaws, four bee-eaters, and four broadbills. Each one is around for 48 hours before it goes away and another replaces it. They are completely random as to which one comes next, so if a particular bee-eater is around for 48 hours, then leaves, you may get another bee-eater or you may get a totally different type of bird such as a macaw or a broadbill. The only key element is that each one is only around for 48 hours at a time before a new one comes around. They move around once every 7 minutes, and no there's no way to startle them to drop a feather. They will randomly drop a feather about once every day.

The feathers can be used for keepsakes, which are quills and hair-altering feathers.

a scissor-tail variegated bee-eater

The scissor-tail variegated bee-eater wanders around on the Coastal Cliffs on the eastern side of the Saewehna Jungle.

This particular bird actually only comes around once every 24 days. There are four bee-eaters, all different in their own way, each coming around in the same time frame.

This bird will randomly drop a scissor-shape variegated feather about once every day.

Description

Sleek and slender in form, the bee-eater's distinctive body shape creates a silhouette resembling an elongated dart with vibrant coloring.

Saewehna Lagoon Refreshments

[Saewehna Lagoon, Shore]
A brief glimpse of the cliffs can be seen through the trees as the terrain thins further from the lagoon border where moss and clusters of flowers create a lush shoreline.  Offering a slight reprieve from the heat, the trees manage to provide enough of a canopy to cast shade over a large bamboo hut fashioned with a wide counter.
Obvious paths: northeast, northwest

>look in hut
In the bamboo hut you see a slender female attendant and a tall female attendant.

>look first attendant
Larena is young and tall, with pale blonde hair lightened naturally from the sun.  She wears a colorful necklace of flowers and a pair of painted, wooden bead earrings to compliment the ivory sarong skirt and pale blue wrap-bodice she wears to work.

>look second attendant
Solani has long red hair that is drawn back from her face with a simple, woven reed circlet to keep the curls from getting in her way as she works.  Her dark grey eyes take in the surroundings with a watchful gaze, almost as if she is concerned about something.  A colorful necklace of flowers complete her work uniform of an ivory sarong skirt and a pale blue wrap-bodice.
