"Abner...git me mah bird shootin' thingy. Them freak birds is in the corn agin."

Antbirds are an unholy mingling of ant and bird created by the same magic that created Owlbears. Unfortunately the magic was just as faulty, and the things wreak havoc when they swarm each year to migrate, eating everything in sight. It is said their creator was creatively murdered at the hands of a mob of farmers.


Antbirds usually fly straight at their opponent, latch on, and bite until it dies, or it wounds the Antbird. If there is a swarm they attack en masse, stripping crops, livestock, and even people.

Improved Grab (Ex): If the Antbird succeeds in biting an opponent it can make a grapple check as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it succeeds it does bite damage each round the hold is maintained.
