The Gold Bird is a harmless critter. It is a golden recolor of the ordinary Bird, with a 1/400 (0.25%) chance of spawning in place of the ordinary version.

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

The 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, unless the furniture item is de-crafted via Shimmer(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions). The Gold Bird itself or the crafted furniture can be sold for 10 GC.

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