A hawk was a bird that was distinguished by its excellent vision, even in dark conditions,[3] and a long, feathered tail.[citation needed]


  • 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]


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]

Aurora's Whole Realms Catalogue sold hawk feathers in bundles of four for 1 gp.[5]


Some of the best-trained hawks were trained by the elven House Korianthil.[6]

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