  • Falcon Dive. If the falcon is flying and dives at least 20 feet straight toward a target, it has advantage on the next attack roll it makes against that target before the end of its turn. If the attack hits, it deals an extra 2 (1d4) damage to the target.
  • Keen Sight. The falcon has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on sight.


  • Beak. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (2d4 + 3) piercing damage.


A forest falcon is a large, swift raptor adapted to agile flight through dense canopy rather than bursts of speed in open air. It prefers a high perch, watching for movement from prey on the forest floor. The falcon strikes in a diving ambush and can even run down prey on foot.
