Aarakocra is a fictional race from Dungeons and Dragons (D&D).

They are identified as humanoid birds who have their own form of communication. They are also known as bird-men.

Their faces combine features of parrots and eagles and sometimes vultures. Their wings and arms are merged, and they can fly 50 feet in the air at great speed.

The Aarakocras usually use combat techniques that involve fighting from above whilst flying. They usually dwell in the mountains and can speak in Auran, Common, and Aarakocra. Their language is beyond human comprehension as it consists mostly of trills and bird calls.
