    Sry, forgot something. Maybe some birds of prey could hunt things like fish and rabbit, and eat some while giving you some other items. Maybe even have a small chance of giving you a fishing treasure.

    ZillionBeret512 I agree I like your idea and it could include shape and size.

    I think all bird should be tamable. Big birds like eagles, owls, and hawks could sit on your shoulder. If you tap on an animal such as a chicken, rabbit, or fish (something medium small), the eagle/hawk/owl could fly off your shoulder, carry them into the air, and drop them right in front of you, giving them fall damage and killing them in front of you, so you could easily collect the meat/loot. 
    Medium birds, such as macaws, seagulls, and toucans could collect fruit, seeds, and crops and bring them back to you. 
    Small birds, such as wrens, sparrows, swallows, and kingfishers could bring you fish and seeds.

    Tiny birds, like hummingbirds, chickadees, and weebills could bring you seeds and honeycombs. 
    All birds that had been tamed by either fish, fruit, or seeds (depending on what they eat) should sit on your shoulder if given the command to. 

    Thanks if you take my comment into consideration! I love this idea, birds tamable or not.

    Terrific suggestion, the overworld really needs more ambience and variety. 

    I wouldn't want the birds to be any specific species, I love that you just said generic birds. Having birds as just different variants under that name, allows developers to create unique to minecraft mobs that can be further developed later on. I don't want more animal from real-life, I want something that is just Minecraft.

    In terms of taming, I think they should be like dolphins, just ambient creatures. Maybe you could feed them with seeds and fly off to bring you another random seed/item. Feed a bird and it comes back with melon seed in its mouth, that'd be a cool dynamic. 

    Again, lovely idea.

    I like this idea a lot. I think that the should be similar to tropical fish in the that they have different color variants and shapes. I also think they should be mostly for decoration and the atmosphere the player is in. I would love to have a fantasy forest with tiny birds chirping and flying in the sky. I also think there should be leaves that float calmly in the wind and, the sound of leaves shaking in trees during storms.

    Maybe they could eat the seeds you seemed and you would need to afraiy them with a scarecrow

    They should come in similar colors and shapes to tropical fish and have 22 common types and thousands more types.

    Yes, they should be similar to tropical fish, so that they add diversity with one simple mob as a background mob.

    I think it would be nice if you could tame some variables of these birds like canaries or how people hunt with eagles and falcons. although I don't think they would do anything particularly special except sing every Minecraft moring and would probably help a lot with the very low-quality ambience going on in the game right now

    That should be a completely separate update. It should be called the Aerial Update.

    When seagulls should eat planted seads, so you have to set up a thing to scare the birds. Dont know what it is called in english.

    Adding on to what ZillionBeret512 said, I think that they should have a chance to drop feathers when killed, but in general it would be really cool if they had a feather particle effect for when they take damage and when they fly!
