EVOLUTION: Goonies first appeared in Yoshi's Island where they look like sketchy seagull creatures that are more head than body.
They returned in Yoshi's Story where they had a slightly more realistic, three-dimensional look, although they still had fat, round bodies that were mostly head.
In Yoshi's Island DS, they go back to a more traditional look.

OTHER BACKGROUND INFO:
"These creatures attack by flying back and forth and carry Yoshi on their bodies, occasionally dropping bombs on his head. They are similar to the Albatosses from Super Mario Bros. 2."-Wikipedia
