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.
Used a rare flower to lure it to a safe spot on shore. Threw a couple bolas then shot it with a tranq dart in the face, it was down instantly. EZ tame with fish or regular kibble, but will need some narcotics or narcoberries for higher levels. Use it to get good fish to tame otters and hesperonis with.
I recommend getting these really early on. They aren't hard to tame once you get a bow and arrow, and try to bolas it if you can. Make sure to bring some narco berries and stuff some fish in him. He's really good to have in not only the early game but throughout the game. If you put him on 'Huntnand Retrieve' mode and whistle to attack a dodo or other small creature, he will drag it body over to you wrapped in a golden haze. Now when you harvest the body, it will give you prime meat. That's why I recommend using him everytime you grind prime meat. Arguably commiting genocide on dodos is better than killing a bronto for prime meat, yes they may be annoying in the wild, but I'd recommend grabbing one soon.
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)
These annoying flyers can be used to aid in taming otters. Just set the hunt and retrieve feature on it, make it attack a fish, and as it comes back to you grab the fish and walk up to the otter and press the button to tame. Otters are quick tames, and provide insulation from both the heat and cold which directly depends on their melee stat. They can also hold multiple artifacts in their inventory. Can be found in shallow rivers.
