    It would be so cool if you found a magpi's nest with a % of being able to loot a shiny thing.

    Owls nests could have a % chance of an enchanted book (owls are wise innit). Crows nests potions ingredients perhaps and so on with context and folklore specific loot that along with the birdsong and calls would do so much for immersion in the game.

    Ravens or Crows would be cool. they could also eat eggs and meat laying on the ground. they could gather in larger groups when it gets dark and then fly off somewhere to sleep like their RL counterpart.

    Perhaps they could have different typed of feathers to make new feather blocks you could place a note block on a feather block then the note block would sound like the bird the feathers used to make the block are from

    Birds would be a great addition to Minecraft! I think that they could have bird nests where you could find bird eggs. Maybe these could be used to attract zombies, wolves, and foxes.

    eagles that can be tamed and act like wolves and one can sit on you like parrot at a time, they would go out of there way, when wild, to hunt smaller birds and are always faster than them, when provoked they will brutally attack and are always just faster than you.

    Maybe they would have a nest with eggs in it that would hatch after a few Minecraft night they would only be able to have eggs if they picked up 5 seeds that day if chop down a tree with baby birds or eggs in it exp eggs and sticks would drop

    I think that the majority of birds should be ambient, like little songbirds that chrip in the background. However, falconry is a real thing, so i think that birds of prey should be tamable, using raw rabbit or chicken. They would attack like wolves and would sit on your shoulder. Finally, I think there should be a sort of firebird that lives in the nether. It would fall under the birds of prey category, so it would be tamable, using something like gold nuggets. These firebirds would be resistant to fire and lava. I think Minecraft needs more ambient, as well as a pretty that is fire resistant, as it is always sad when your wolf falls in lava. 😭

    Yes to birdbaths and houses, also the types of birds that are inclouded should be like cardinals, Sparrows, Vultures, etc.  You could have diffrent colours like the parrots for like a chipping sparrow and a song sparrow, and like a river sparrow etc.  But not diffrent mob eggs, because there are like at least 1000 diffrent kinds of birds.(probobly more)

    Maybe a few village specific birds could be a great addition as well

    Tree sparrows/house sparrows:

    -nests on trees and rarely on the village structures

    -replants crops at the cost of lower yield/seeds (wild/tamed) 

    -tamable by seeds/bread

     

    Pigeons:

    -tamable by seeds/bread

    -tamed pigeons can be found in the village

    -wild ones can also be found in hilly biomes, nesting on cliffsides

    -Once tamed,can deliver mail towards a specific location if a lodestone exists at the destination, requires the player to bring the pigeon to that specific lodestone first

     

    Bonus: Spiders will be scared and avoid contact with any bird types, all birds will also actively hunt down silverfish and the upcoming termites.

    They should make it so then the birds could send messages through the form of a book or paper and send it to specific players. That could be complicated but would be cool on a multiplayer world.

    Spawn the birds the same way as the tropical fish. Never know which bird you'll get

    They should have variations the same way as tropical fish, but also kind of restricted in biomes, for example brownish color in the desert. We need more ambiance in Minecraft, biomes are pretty empty and not every mob needs to be farmable.

    Some bird should also sit in groups on the ground and peck for food. If the player comes and startles them, they should fly up and swarm away. That would be really epic.

    I think bird migration would be quite cool as well (this might have to be added alongside seasons though). But ye maybe instead the birds just fly off occasionally, just the picture of seeing the local gees or ospreys heading off would be very cool (though I do think this suggestion should just be for songbirds and the birds that I mentioned should be separate mobs completely). Possibly when you go to their nesting spot, i.e. where they’ve migrated to, they will have set up nests and laid their eggs. Then kind of like the turtle mob when the chicks hatch you can collect young feathers from them as the moult. These can maybe be used to craft an early game version of the elytra which can only glide and can’t be used with fireworks.

    Just like other comments, make some of them tameable would be great. Predator birds would be tameable and protect players, corvids would be able to trust players like foxes, passerines can be kept as house pet or just make a bird house on backyard as their home similar to bees but they will fly instead of attack when got hit

    I love it! A few questions though.

    1) would they be bred like chickens, with their unrealistic breeding mechanisms, or lay eggs like turtles?

    2) would they also eat fish?
