Vanilla Minecraft can quickly become boring and monotonous. You see the same things everywhere you go, and none of it is exceptionally entertaining or unique. The Exotic Birds Mod for Minecraft 1.12.2/1.11.2 adds a little flavor and interest to your game, though. By bringing in exotic birds, you will have new mobs and new species to admire.


Each one has its own personality traits and stats, adding a whole new level of variety to your playing. You can find different types, you can watch them, you can kill them, and you can enjoy the extra content this offers in a simple and manageable way.



Not Just One Type

In the Exotic Birds Mod, you have multiple types of birds available. Instead of forcing you with one type and calling that a day, you will have access to a long list of bird species. This includes flamingos, ducks, and peacocks. Many of the exotic or interesting bird species are here.

Not all of the species are real birds. The phoenix is available through this mod, too, and gives you some incredible benefits and advantages. As a mount, you can ride it around wherever you go. It gives you a new way to see the world around you. It is also available through eggs that you get when they die, making it impossible to lose your own phoenix.

Each type is an individual. Ducks, phoenixes, flamingoes, and all other species have their own stats and traits. When going on a journey to find them all, you will see that they act and appear different from one another. No two species is exactly alike, making the adventure all the more exciting.

Fight, Collect, Admire

You can fight the birds in the Exotic Birds Mod. This is part of their traits and personalities. Some will want to fight you, going up and attacking right away, while others are content with leaving you alone. In your travels, you will come across both types. This is when understanding their differences and unique traits can come in handy.

Adventures are far more entertaining with the mod. It gives you an adventure and an experience unlike any other mod. Thanks to its simplicity and regular updates, you should have no trouble running it. It will work on nearly every PC out there, offering the same expected quality and options. Anyone can enjoy all that awaits in this new bird filled universe.
