    They could maybe eat your crops, but you could scare them away with a scarecrow.

    Birds of prey? These would be the biggest birds in the game.

    I believe this should really be added! Perhaps they could add some bird nests as well. It would spawn on trees, doesn’t have to be too realistic so they can just spawn on leaves. Along with naturally spawning. How about you can also craft them with 3 sticks making a V shape? It’d be awesome and provide so much potential to people who create trees and other stuff.

    maybe you can also tame some of them? that'll be so cool, with different items to tame with for different birds. and also some of their own behaviors for different types. oo and also different eggs that they'll lay in a nest they can make! and they can also pick stuff up, i can imagine so much things to be added

    I just walked through a new, 1.17 minecraft world for 9 minutes. No animals for that long. Then I found some pigs. It's seriously sad and crazy that minecraft hasn't added common birds yet. Birds are everywhere irl. Except cold places. But it should really be where if you spawn into a world that's warm and green like a oak forest, you instantly start hearing birds chirping, and see birds flying around if you're in there long enough.

    I'd prefer them to drop food though. I want to hunt them with my bow and arrow. At the moment the only mob I look up for is the phantom (yuck) and the neutral mobs just stand there waiting to get shot. I want a bow and arrow challenge that doesn't ruin my nights.

    Imagine craft nest box  and a possibility to have a bird, in the real world it happen! You can build a nest box for the birds and have a bird family in it! But you need to separate it 50m from other bird  nest box, the birds are teritorrial animals. Mojang Studios can make it because its a vanilla form to protect the birds in the real world 🌎 .

    I love this idea! It would make the biomes much more interesting, also killing birds could be a good source of food!

    They could raid your garden, too, especially berry bushes and any other fruit-bearing bushes that may be added!!! 😍😍😍😍

    I think that is 100x better than just having say bird sounds that just play from nowhere. I'd just think that rather than a generic bird, have LOADS. At least 5 - 10 per biome. Just imagine how immersive it'd be.

    For example in the forest:

    blackbirds, robins, carrion crows, tawny owls, great spotted woodpeckers, tits, wrens, finches, pigeons, doves

    The more the better. And for that example idk i just feel like the regular forest looks kinda like a British/ European temperate forest sp thats why i've gone with more european birds.

    So like you could make it better, maybe an owl spawn egg, spawn in forest its a tawny, spawn in snow biome its a snowy, etc

    Idk lol

    I would really love to see this in the game. Birds will add more life to the sky in Minecraft. Maybe the birds can make a nest in the trees in warm biomes? Or they can make a nest in the spring if seasons are added to Minecraft. If you break the nest you will just get a stick, nothing worth breaking it for.

    A sky without birds is like the sea without fish. I would really love to see birds in Minecraft.

    Maybe feathers can be used to craft wool

    I want this so badddd I also think that there should be a tame-able species like a Falcon that you can train or have as a pet. More varieties of parrots with different body shapes and colors would make things a lot cooler too. I think that certain birds could drop special feathers that you could collect. I think that crows or ravens spawning near witches or witches huts would be amazing. Humming birds appearing near flowers that the player has planted would also be pretty cool

    maybe if they dropped new rare feathers, we could have some ingame capes that could be worn by everyone. it would be cool for roleplay and storytelling.

    Somebody commented that they could drop different colors of feathers, I think it would make for some really cool arrows! So that in PVP maybe, you know which is which?

    I could see this being something like the tropical fish, where there's just one spawn egg that can spawn a large variety of birds, but they would all act the same. But they also should improve parrots to act more like this too.
