    This is an excellent idea. Can you imagine that the birds provide a specific soundtrack to the biome. Player wakes up in their farm to the sounds of Robins, finches and blackbirds. Player goes deep into a dark oak forest and as the night closes in squawks and hoots of owls, emerge unseen from somewhere in the canopy. In the taiga, the lonely call of a Crow, eyeing the player with blinking eyes. In the desert, high above, the red kite lets out a long screech. You get the idea, it would add so much immersion.

    Maybe pigeons and seagulls could spawn in populated areas; seagulls could swoop down and take anything edible in a player's ready hand and pigeons would roost on the player's builds pooping everywhere.

    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.

    There is a serious lack of mobs in normal biomes that aren’t snowy or ocean biomes. I’ve tried to suggest them adding common birds multiple times, but they just won’t let me and won’t add them yet. THEY NEED TO. There’s birds everywhere but the desert and ocean irl. Every morning you hear birds sing, and see them throughout the day after that. I’ve fed a bluejay in my backyard with peanuts before and created a friendship. It would swoop down 2 feet away from my head and take them. This needs to be added. Then secondly, other birds could be added with biome specific spawning.

     

    i also would really like to see owls. Idk if any bird but the parrot should be tameable or not, but like I just said I’ve created a friendship with a bluejay and a squirrel taking peanuts from my hand, but an owl and eagle and bluejay/common bird being tameable might be a bit too much.

    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)
