  • Multiattack. The clockwork songbird makes two razor wing attacks.
  • Razor Wing. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, 5 ft. reach, one target. Hit: 4 (1d4 + 2) slashing damage.
  • Airy Aria. Each allied creature within 60 feet that can hear the clockwork songbird gains a +10-foot bonus to its movement speed or advantage of Dexterity saving throws until the beginning of the clockwork songbird’s next turn. The effects of multiple clockwork songbirds’ Airy Arias do not stack with one another.
  • Gentle Lullaby. Each hostile creature within 30 feet must attempt a DC 11 Wisdom saving throw or become drowsy until the beginning of the clockwork songbird’s next turn. While drowsy, attack rolls against the creatures have advantage. A creature that becomes wounded while drowsy loses this penalty and is immune to the clockwork songbird’s Gentle Lullaby for 24 hours.
  • Inspiring Anthem. When the clockwork songbird uses this ability, each allied creature within 30 feet becomes inspired to do their best in battle. Every time an allied creature successfully makes a weapon attack, they may choose to reroll a single damage die. If they do this, they must take the result of the second damage die, even if it is worse.


Marvels of machinery and musicality, clockwork songbirds are prized for the beautiful melodies they produce, which can vary based on the songbird’s construction. These clockwork creatures often inhabit the homes and gardens of nobility, where they fill opulent manors and wide-open green spaces alike with their lilting songs. Both children and adults delight in clockwork songbirds, with the former seeing these mechanical creatures as amusing toys and the latter as party novelties. A clockwork songbird is typically no longer than 18 inches and weighs about 5 pounds.
