I have to admit, it is a shame that he's doing peacocks, now my mod won't get as much attention. I have avoided birds that he's got in his mod, but there's nothing i can do ;(
It looks like a couple kids in school working together on a mod. Maybe you could help them out and all work together? I realize you have your own ideas so that might not go over so well, but thought I'd toss the idea in there anyway.
I saw someone say something about bird feeders attracting birds. I think that would be nice. I think it would be cool to make a bird house to attract birds too, or a type of habitat so they will be drawn there. If you want to be realistic, not all bird should be sweet and wonderful. Crows should attack gardens. You may need to make a scarecrow to keep them out. Some birds are noisy and annoying. You might want to do something to run them away. One example would be a woodpecker. If you live in a wood house or have a wooden structure outside, they might be attracted to it and peck holes in the sides, sometimes destroying the block if they peck enough. You may need rubber snakes to put on your house to keep them away.
Some birds may be attracted to berry bushes or trees. Will cats chase some birds?
A suggestion for a bird I haven't seen (maybe overlooked) but how about a mocking bird? You could get really silly with this one. Can you imagine a mockingbird sneaking up and making creeper sounds? The Lyre bird does that as well. A quick youtube or google search will show you a Lyre bird. They even mimic people cutting trees. What ever they hear, they "sing" it. I think it would be funny to hear Sssss BOOM! and turn around to realize it is a Mocking bird or a Lyre bird.
Are there any cave birds? Snipes maybe? Something to liven up the dark caves a bit? I guess Screech Owls might like caves since they are nocturnal. I suppose if you wanted to go winged animals you could do a vampire bat. Vampire bats love to drain chickens. Zombie chickens? LOL! I guess zombie chickens would lay rotten fowl eggs. (doh)
I'm looking forward to building an aviary. Nice work so far. Hope something I typed will inspire you.
