The name of the Exotic Birds mod alone should be enough to explain its purpose. It has basically been designed for players who have had too much of the ordinary Minecraft animals and are looking for a change of pace and, of course, some extra variety. The best part about this mod is that it doesn’t restrict itself with ‘reality’. Alongside the actual real world birds, the Exotic Birds mod also implements the Phoenix, which is a magnificent mythical creature that you’ll absolutely love having in your Minecraft world. The mod’s been out for a while and ever since then it has seen constant patches and updates to make sure that it’s up to date and functioning well at all times.
The best thing about the Exotic Birds mod is, of course, its variety. It adds tons of expertly crafted birds to the game and what’s most impressive about is the fact that every single bird has its own special characteristics and stats. For example, the Cassowary, which has a health of 10 hearts and is usually found in the forest. This creature is pretty passive and usually minds its own business but can definitely go hostile if you attack it. Similar to this, all birds have their own special characteristics that distinguish them from the others.
The highlight of this mod is definitely the Phoenix, though. These creatures don’t spawn like the normal birds implemented by this mod, but instead they’re hatched out of eggs, and even the eggs have various special conditions that need to be met in order to complete a successful hatch. You can even use the Phoenix as a mount and explore the entire game world from a whole new perspective. They’re kind of immortal as well since every Phoenix drops an egg upon death that can be used to hatch it once again.
