A huge monster in the shape of a kestrel.

Giant kestrels are simply giant versions of their smaller, more common cousins: kestrels. In a similar manner to normal kestrels, they can be captured in a cage trap and used for egg production. This makes them better assets for your dwarves alive than dead.

Some dwarves like giant kestrels for their coloration and their hunting prowess.
