Squawking Sticks are immobile enemies that appear in Mother 3. They appear on the path to the Clayman Factory in Chapter 4. Squawking Sticks usually appear by trees, and a couple of them guard gift boxes. In battle, it can peck at Lucas and the party, use PSI techniques, and often squawks loudly to call other enemies. They have a rare chance to drop a "Good Stick". They remain in the same area until Chapter 7, where they are replaced by the Squawking Boomstick.
Its battle sound is Battle Sound 27 which falls under Code Numbers 517 for regular attack, 518 for Smaaaash! and 519 for Miss.
It is a pun on the word "Walking Stick", a stick used for support while walking. The "Squawking" part comes from the fact that it's head resembles a bird.
