- A huge monster in the form of a wren.
Giant wrens are massive flying creatures that appear in most savage biomes rather frequently. Much larger than a normal wren and nearly four times the size of the average dwarf, they will scare livestock and cause constant job cancellation spam whenever they appear in the surface, but unlike other more aggressive flying giants, they are benign and will avoid actually harming your civilians. They are considered exotic mounts, so you may see elves riding them into battle in the event of a siege.
They are handy for the production of meat, bones and tallow thanks to their great size. Being birds, they can be tamed and will lay delicious eggs if a nest box is provided. Both of these make them a colossal boon for a highly populated fortress.
Some dwarves like giant wrens for their intricate songs.
