How to make controllable birds?

The title doesn’t explain it in enough detail so I will elaborate. I would like to create an ability where if I press something like “q” then I play a short animation and release a dove from my hand, I can do this part but I would also like for me to basically make the bird my “startercharacter” until I release it, I would like my character to not disappear either. I hope this makes sense.
(No scripts needed just links to things that could help)

Maybe you could create a bird rig to be the Starter Character (Here’s a great tutorial), name it as “StarterCharacter” (without quotation marks) and then insert it into StarterPlayer.
Roblox is automatically going to make this the starter character.
