Flyby. The eagle does not provoke opportunity attacks when it flies out of an opponent’s reach.

Multiattack. The eagle makes two attacks: one with its talons and either a drop attack or one beak attack against a grappled creature.

Beak. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d6 + 3) piercing damage.

Talons. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d10 + 3) slashing damage. On a successful hit, the eagle can grapple a creature that is at least 1 size smaller than itself (escape DC 13).

Drop. The eagle drops a grappled creature, dealing an additional 12 (2d8 + 3) bludgeoning damage in addition to the normal fall damage if the targeted creature took fall damage to begin with.

A massive eagle native to some remote islands, the Haast's eagle was known for its massive size that dwarfed even the largest modern birds. With a wingspan of up to 9 feet, it was a devastating threat to any creature who dared to oppose it. The eagle famously preys upon the moa or elephant bird, a large flightless bird.
