Winged guardians are very similar to stone guardians; they can move only if the player is standing on a glyph, and have the same near-immunity to damage. The difference is that instead of stepping towards the player they will blink, provided that they have a clear line of sight. This makes them somewhat more difficult to get past without being hit.
Zapping a Winged Guardian with Negate Magic will cause it to fall from the air and shatter.
