  • Swarm. The swarm can occupy another creature’s space and vice versa, and the swarm can move through any opening large enough for a Tiny creature. The swarm can’t regain hit points or gain temporary hit points.


  • Pierce. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 1 piercing damage. If the target is a creature, the wound bleeds for 1 necrotic damage on each subsequent turn. The wound continues to bleed until it is cured by magical healing.


Undead hummingbird swarms are composed of hundreds to thousands of dead hummingbirds. The tiny birds flit and dart about as they move, but seem to follow a single, focused mind when pursuing prey. Their pecks deal little damage, but in large numbers they can kill larger creatures by swarming over their bodies.
