Clockwork avians were airborne machines of war created during the Brothers' War. Urza created flocks of small clockwork birds to combat Mishra's dragon engines. They were able to tear the engines' skin and destroy them from the inside by igniting the internal fuel tanks used for the napalm-like fire breath.

One of the mechanical birds that survived was used centuries later by Ravidel to defend Castle Melmereth, and both killed and was destroyed by a Cockatrice.
