When taming, put narcotics and kibble (or just fish) on a nearby Dino or chest under treetops not too far from the shore. Then, collect berries from bushes as you walk to the bird. They’ll agrro on you, and they can only steal the useless berries you got before (also Ark devs, make it so when they eat narcotic they stole from the player, their topor goes up. It’s realistic, and will make our live much easier) bola it when it swoops in, hit it with a club or something, and boom! Tamed.
Similarly to real life, these greedy douchebags will try to steal your sandwiches, however if you are drunk enough, you can stay up into the late hours of the evening and have deep insightful conversations with these feathered friends as they simply stare at you in confusion and bark in bird language. In return they will bring you magical fish as a reward.
