When taming bring lots of tranq arrows. For ichthyornis level 1-15 I suggest the wooden bow, 16-30 crossbow, higher levelled use darts. Why use different weapons? It is a prime example to each ranged weapon can have more or less damage, be careful as the next dart/arrow that lands a hit might kill it. I find bola kind of works but isn’t enough to get it on the ground. Make sure you lure them to land because they aren’t immune to drowning.
Keep in mind that you will need narcotics to keep them under for taming.
On default attack/aggression settings it’ll attack very close dinos when on your shoulder. If you told it to not follow, picking it up and putting it down makes it follow you again.
While they are annoying thieves, they are really good pets.
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.
You have to tame a high level because it would have so little health you would kill it by accident. I would use a long neck to knock it out and probably 10 bolas because they are pretty hard to hit. Up if this helped.
They need to make it so that if you put narcos bio toxin etc in ur last hot bar a lot the icthyornis will eat them and get knocked out(like putting berries in ur last hotbar slot to tame the pego, but instead of taming it will be knocked out)
