Sparrow men are animal people variants of the common sparrow who inhabit many savage biomes. They spawn in groups of anywhere between 5-10 individuals and are generally content to keep to themselves. In terms of size, they are a little over half the weight of the average dwarf. All sparrow men are born with Legendary skill in climbing.

Like other savage animal people, sparrow men can join civilizations, become historical figures, appear as visitors and be playable in adventurer mode.

Some dwarves like sparrow men for their dust baths and their lovely songs.

Sparrow men are known for their habit of endeavors in piracy. Beware, if you let young female nobles stay near fun coasts, reanimated skeletons of humans may take her, prompting a sparrow man to drag along your smith to rescue her.
