The Gold Bird is a harmless critter. It is a golden recolor of an ordinary Blue Jay, with a 0.25*1/400 (0.25%) chance of spawning in place of all types of ordinary birds.

Gold Bird has only 5 health and no defense, and can be damaged by other enemies and players.

Gold Bird can be caught with any Bug Net to be carried around in the inventory and released later, or crafted into animated decorative furniture (Gold Bird Cage). Once crafted, the Gold Bird cannot be released again. Gold Bird itself or the crafted furniture can be sold for 10.

It is one of the few entities that can be detected by the Lifeform Analyzer or its upgrades.
