A hawk was a bird that was distinguished by its excellent vision, even in dark conditions,[2] and a long, feathered tail.[citation needed]

Species[edit | edit source]

  • A certain species of hawks could be found in Amn. Their backs were blue-gray, bellies had ivory feathering and were streaked with dark gray, black, and pale orange. They had a long, square-tipped tail.[4]

Ecology[edit | edit source]

Hawks were predatory birds that were native to the natural world. These animals flew through the sky in search of prey, which included small animals, lizards, snakes, and vermin.[citation needed]

Habitats[edit | edit source]

In the Unapproachable East, hawks could be found around the Tannath Gap.[5]

Beyond the Prime Material plane, hawks could be found in the forests of Barovia.[6]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Some of the best-trained hawks were trained by the elven House Korianthil.[7]

Hawks could be trained as hunting companions if raised from chicks and properly instructed.[citation needed]

Usages[edit | edit source]

Aurora's Whole Realms Catalogue sold hawk feathers in bundles of four for 1 gp.[8]
