How Bird Feeding Works[edit]

  • The player crafts a bird feeder and places it on an island.
  • The player places Fish or Seeds into the Bird Feeder to attract Seagulls
  • During the Day cycle, Seagulls will come to eat the fish or seeds, and will subsequently poop
  • The player can mine the poop to potentially harvest Seeds
  • The feed used will impact the likelihood of mining different types of seeds.
  • Up to 12 Seagulls will come during one day cycle
