Hawks (鷹, Taka) are commonly used for communication between villages. The hawks Takamaru and Tobimaru both belong to the Hidden Sand, the former being the village's fastest messenger hawk. Sasuke Uchiha is also able to summon his own large hawk, which he can use for flight. When exactly he acquired the contract to summon hawks has not been revealed, something Obito Uchiha wondered himself.
