The Sparrowhead is a small, birdlike creature, slightly resembling the Scornet. Its orange body is completely round and has darker spots on its top. It also has a pair of bug-like wings that allow it to fly. It has orange eyes with black pupils, and a narrow beak that it can stab Pikmin with. It is smaller than a leader, being about the same width and half of their height. Sparrowheads generally appear in groups of at least two individuals. They either hover in place or idle on a surface until they spot a target, which is indicated by a chirping sound they emit. They will attempt to skewer Pikmin and leader by flying into them. Sparrowheads can be defeated by throwing Pikmin onto them when they are within reach, which is usually right before they attempt an attack.
