Etymology[edit]

Short tailed bird

Pictogram (象形): a short-tailed bird (e.g. a sparrow). Compare .

The right component should not be confused with 圭, which is 土土 (stacked) – rather, 隹 is shaped like , with an extra 一 stroke. Also, the left component resembles , but this is due to simplification, and is not the etymology.
