Habitat(s)Hyrule

Pigeons are a type of creature in Breath of the Wild.[name reference needed]

Characteristics

Pigeons are registered within the Hyrule Compendium under four different sub species, Wood, Rainbow, Hotfeather and White. Like most wild animals in Breath of the Wild they can be hunted by Link for food, dropping bird meat when they are killed.

Wood Pigeon

Wood pigeons are the most common type of pigeon and can be found throughout Hyrule. They are grey in colour, with a lighter grey neck and a purple head and neck. Though they lack a strong sense of awareness[1] they will flee from Link if they see him and drop a Raw Bird Drumstick when killed.

Rainbow Pigeon

Most commonly found in the northers forest and grasslands of Hyrule, rainbow pigeons are most famous for their brightly coloured plumage[2], which is largely purple in colour with a red, orange and yellow underbelly. They will flee from Link if they spot him and drop a Raw Bird Thigh when killed.

A rainbow pigeons diet consists largely of nuts and grain, though they are also known to eat insects.[3]

Hotfeather Pigeon

Found on and around Death Mountain, hotfeather pigeons are mainly red in appearance with orange spots on their chest and grey wings and head. Their plumage is fireproof and highly prized as a clothing material[4]. They will flee from Link if they see him and drop a raw bird thigh when killed.

White Pigeon

White pigeons are said to have got their white plumage after a wood pigeon survived atop a snowy mountain by changing its feathers to blend in with the snow[5]. They will flee from Link if they see him and drop a either a raw bird thigh or a raw whole bird when killed. The high quality of there meat is due to the extra layer of fat white pigeons have developed to combat the cold.[6]
