Glad to see the original mod maker posting this up on MCF. I'll be trying it out right now. Dl'ed from your post on planetminecraft after I seeing the stolen version posted on here. It looks really nice man.
Update from my last post. This is downright beautiful man. Riding the ostriches around is fun as hell and the seagulls make the skies look that much better. So far I've only run into seagulls, penguins and ostriches; but all of them are really well done in terms of mod behavior and texture design. I'm guessing by how often I'm running into stuff the mobs are biome dependent, haven't run into ducks or eagles yet, and from the pics on planetminecraft I'll see those phoenixes in the nether. I'm glad to see that the birds aren't swarming everywhere like with a lot of mob mods, you got their spawn rates down perfect. I have a feeling I will continue to use this for quite a while.
I just finished a mod review of this fine mod you have going on! When it's finished uploading, would you mind taking a look to see if it's worthy of your OP? And I'm gonna take a guess at the latest mob: Spotted Owl?
