A Harpy.

Harpies (HAR-peez). Razor-clawed, smelly birds with the faces of women, who defiled the food of King Phineus of Salmydessus. The king was so grateful to the Argonauts for ridding him of these pests that he suggested a means by which Jason and his shipmates might avoid being crushed to death by the Clashing Rocks.
