Does that mean winter is gone?

Wilson, when examining the Redbird after winter.

"Flying" Birds are passive Mobs in Don't Starve. There are 3 kinds of flying birds in Don't Starve and in the Reign of Giants DLC: Crows, Redbirds, Snowbirds, and in the Shipwrecked DLC, there are also 5 kinds of flying birds: Toucans, Seagulls, Parrots, and Parrot Pirates and Cormorants. In A New Reign for Don't Starve Together, there is a new type of flying bird: Canary. They can be found in every biome during the Day and Dusk. They fly down from off-screen and peck the ground for a few moments, then fly away. When they take flight, there is a chance that Seeds are left behind, unless it's Winter. Birds will also be attracted to Seeds left on the ground. If the player or most other mobs get too close, birds will be frightened away.

When killed, birds drop a Morsel or a Feather, and all other birds nearby will fly away. They are considered innocent creatures and killing them directly adds points to the player's naughtiness level, which causes Krampus to appear. Killing a Crow adds 1 point to the player's naughtiness level, while killing a Redbird or Snowbird adds 2 points to the player's naughtiness level.

Crows can appear in any season, while Redbirds and Snowbirds appear only in Summer and Winter, respectively. Additionally, Redbirds and Snowbirds land mostly on Grassland, with Crows being the most common bird in the other biomes.

Spear.png Hunting[edit | edit source]

Birds can be caught using a Bird Trap. Placing the trap on the ground will eventually catch a bird even without bait. Adding bait such as Seeds or Berries will greatly decrease the time it takes to catch one. They can be Murdered by right-clicking them in inventory to produce a Feather or Morsel, or be cooked on fire for a Cooked Morsel. Birds in the player's inventory can be dropped on the ground and will flop on the ground belly-up for a short while before flying off. They can also be imprisoned in Bird Cages.

Hunting Birds requires a ranged weapon such as a Boomerang. Birds will not land within melee range (even if bait is placed on the ground) and will fly away when the player approaches. However, if they are put to sleep, when using characters with a normal damage modifier, they can be killed in 1 hit with a sufficient melee weapon.

If a bird is in flight while in range of a sleeping item's effect, it will plummet to the ground and can be picked up as an item.

Wearing a Feather Hat will increase the number of Birds spawning as well as decreasing the time between spawns. Using Birds of the World (while playing as Wickerbottom) will also cause a large number of them to land.

One can send a Smallbird to attack a Bird. This can be done without the bird getting frightened and without raising naughtiness.

They take one blast from the Ice Staff to be frozen and one Sleep Dart to be put to sleep.

Gift Icon.png Downloadable Content[edit | edit source]

In Don't Starve: Reign of Giants, Redbirds will also appear in Autumn and Spring. Birds inside the player's inventory will starve in 2 days unless they are fed Seeds.

In Don't Starve: Shipwrecked, Parrots, Toucans and Seagulls replace Redbirds, Crows, and Snowbirds respectively, in that they will drop the same coloured feathers. A special type of Parrot wearing a pirate hat may appear instead of a regular Parrot, mocking the player. This special Parrot will drop Dubloons instead of Seeds. Seagulls may also be encountered at the Ocean in the Deep Ocean biome while sailing during most seasons, and found on land during Hurricane Season.

Unlike other birds, Seagulls are omnivores. During the Hurricane season, where they can be seen on land, they will eat food left on the ground and pick Limpet Rocks.

Cormorants can be encountered in the Shallow Ocean dropping Roe. Seagulls may also drop Seeds on the water.

Birds that spawn in Reign of Giants cannot spawn on any Shipwrecked turfs and vice versa. Exchanging turfs between worlds will create an area where no birds can spawn, unlike having only crows or toucans spawning as with most turfs.

Don't Starve Together icon.png Don't Starve Together[edit | edit source]

In Don't Starve Together, Canaries spawn instead of Crows near Friendly Scarecrows. It has a 5% chance of dropping Saffron Feathers when killed. When placed in a Bird Cage in Caves while the Toadstool is alive, the Canary gets poisoned after 6-12 minutes. The player can then take the bird back on the surface and free it. The Canary then drops 5-6 Saffron Feathers and flies away. Dropping a volatile Canary on the ground in the Caves will make it explode and drop 1-2 Saffron Feathers. The explosion can turn a nearby Toadstool into a Misery Toadstool. 'Murdering' a volatile Canary only drops 1 Rot. Volatile Canaries can also be used to craft Napsacks.

Prototype.png Tips[edit | edit source]

  • When bait-trapping Birds for their Feathers, players should make sure to do so on Turf in which specific Birds will spawn, so that they get specific Feathers. Redbirds and Snowbirds spawn most commonly on Grass Turf, while Crows spawn on Rocky Turf and all player-made turfs.
  • If one can manage to bring a Damaged Bishop from the Ruins, their ranged blasts are an effective tool to hunt birds without expending resources on Bird Traps or Boomerangs.
  • If the player doesn't want any Feathers from the Birds, cooking them alive provides a guaranteed Cooked Morsel.

Placeholder.png Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Before the Naughty and Nice update, the Redbird was called "Red Bird".
  • Cormorants were added to the Shipwrecked DLC more than a year after its official completion in the Home Sea Home update, after being tested in a beta branch for several months.
  • Canaries were introduced in the Warts and All update.
  • Meat such as Morsels previously attracted Crows, however Morsels can no longer be used as a bait in traps and will not attract Crows to their location.
  • The Snowbird is referenced as a "Winter Robin" or "Junco" in game files. A Junco is a small North American bird, unrelated to the robin.
  • The Snowbird's coloration and crest are reminiscent of the Blue Jay (a member of the crow's family, Corvidae).
  • The Parrot appears to be based on the green-winged macaw.
  • The Toucan appears to be based in part on yellow-throated toucans.
  • The Redbird is referenced as "Robin" in game files, and uses real-life robin sounds, but the artwork is inspired by a Cardinal.
  • Woodie strongly dislikes birds. He says they are evil and should be punished.
  • Maxwell mentions that he does not know how the Crows got to the island and does not recognize the Snowbird. He says that the Redbird comes from "the fire lands", possibly meaning that there are other worlds in the game's dimension.
  • Crows have a lower Naughtiness level than the other birds. This might be due to the common belief of Crows representing bad omens.
  • In the Reign of Giants DLC, upon examination of a Redbird, Wilson will say, "Does that mean winter is gone?" instead of "Does that mean spring is coming?".
  • Parrot Pirates, upon being caught, will have a name and will occasionally speak from the inventory as red text appearing above the player's head.
  • When stunned, Birds can be stolen by Prime Apes and stored in their inventories.
  • Real-life canaries are extremely sensitive to oxygen deprivation. In-game Canaries getting poisoned when in caves is a reference to their historical use, warning miners that air was running out by dying.
  • Corvus brachyrhynchos, the Crow's name referred by Wickerbottom, is a scientific name for the real-life American Crow.
  • Cardinalis (while Wickerbottom examining the Redbird) is a genus of cardinal in the family Cardinalidae.

Mosquito.png Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • If the Shipwrecked DLC is installed, on a Reign of Giants world, Redbirds may spawn during Winter. Birds may also drop Seeds during Winter.
  • Birds can sometimes "land on" objects and mobs that are otherwise obstacles, such as Campfires, the Pig King or the Lake.
