This spell creates an alarm that uses animals in the area to warn of intruders. In all respects it is identical to the alarm spell except as noted here. The spellcaster enchants a group of animals native to the region to act as sentries in the warded area. When the alarm is triggered the enchanted animals will raise the alarm, warning everyone in the area. The alarm is different based on the animals, be it the howling of wolves, an explosion of birds out of the trees, or bats from the cave ceiling, rabbits thumping out a warning, or caicdas chirping.

The material component for this spell is a small amount of food for the type of animal that gives the alarm.
