Hawks!! Your days of safe daytime skies are about to end. And you'll love it. Daytime flying fiends that will terrify and amaze. Well, mainly just terrify. But, let's assume that's what you're here for.
Everybody knows daytimes are a bit boring without any manner of aerial assault (at least in the overworld!) so we developed a ... solution.
Hawks are (most definitely) a hostile mob and the stars of this show. They spawn mostly in extreme hills, but you'll see them every now and then in plains biomes and savanna plateaus. They definitely dislike players but they aren't fond of pillagers either, so don't feel too bad.
They *really* don't like llamas, but in a good way! Because they won't go near them. So, there's a defense if you're just starting out. Travel with llamas! Hope they don't die along the way, because you might not like who will be next.
There are several variants of the larger birds. The lighter ones are much easier to handle, and are more common. The darker variants are truly nasty.
We've also added crows, most common in swamp biomes when the light level is reduced. They also spawn, less commonly, in daytime in taiga and plains biomes. Crows don't care about llamas, unfortunately. They fear villagers though.
Last, and least, we have seagulls. Ok, not least. Not really last either. Well, maybe least, we need a poll. They're mostly neutral, but every now and then you'll encounter a not-nice one. You know what to do. Spawns at the beach! Of course they do....
Find them in swamps, chop them down, grab their spawn egg (looks like a scarecrow lollipop), and put it down where you don't want hawks to attack. Easy!

Added the almighty scarecrow, which spawns in swamps. Made all the birds afraid of them.
