    An idea I had seen regarding messenger birds was the use of lodestone compasses. Give the messenger bird a book or a bundle(the message), then equip it with a lodestone compass so it flies to a specific location that players would know to look for it. It doesn't do players any good to spend an hour looking all over their base for their bird, it needs to go to the same spot every time. Using a lodestone compass means the bird will have a target to navigate to. Give birds 2 slots for a lodestone compass and the cargo. This allows the bird to travel to its destination with the first compass and then be sent to another base with another compass & delivery. This would be an amazing feature for role play servers, as private communication between bases would be possible, and allow players to continue with other activities while the message is being delivered. 

    Birds should be able to deliver items the player has found and wants to send home immediately, so they aren't at risk of losing it. It can be only one non-armor or weapon item per bird, and the player can only carry one bird. If the player just looted the Woodland Mansion and wants to make sure a totem of undying makes it home, send it home using a carrier bird.

    Birds should be able to be intercepted or lured away from their destination via food by players who know where the bird will travel. This would be good for multiplayer, where players can intercept messages and items by getting close to the bird or know its flight path.
