Version 0.25: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.

As the Dungeon is a largely subterranean structure, only a few birds call it home. However, those few have adapted themselves to some of the most inhospitable places in the Dungeon and can make for dangerous opponents. All birds can fly, are extremely fast, and are generally quite evasive.
