Sparrowheads generally spawn in groups of at least 2 individuals. They remain off-screen until a target walks nearby, which will cause them to descend onto the level. They will then hover in place until they spot a target, which is indicated by a chirping sound they emit. They will attempt to skewer Pikmin or Captain Olimar by flying into them.
