It's a Takkuri.
Run! This bird will steal your items! C'mon! What are you doing just standing around?! (MM3D)

In Majora's Mask, the Takkuri is a rather large bird that flies around the entrance to the Milk Road area of Termina Field.[1] As it sees Link, it swoops down and attacks him. If the Takkuri makes a successful hit, it will make Link drop various items like Rupees, Bombs and Arrows. After the young hero obtains the Hero's Bow, Takkuri is able to steal Link's items such as an empty Bottle or even his Sword.[2][3] The bird will then fly away to Clock Town with the item. The bird seems to work for the Man from the Curiosity Shop, and as such, stolen items such as the Bottle and Sword can later be bought back at the Curiosity Shop.[4][5][6][7]

The Takkuri has high health, so it takes about 15 regular Arrows to defeat it. However, if Link is successful in defeating the bird, he will receive a Huge Rupee worth 200 Rupees. Defeating the bird is made easier on Epona, where it cannot hurt Link. Wearing the Stone Mask makes Link undetectable by the Takkuri, and prevents the thievery of Link's items. If Link plays the "Song of Time" to reset back to the Dawn of the First Day, any items lost or stolen by the Takkuri will be recovered.

Oracle of Seasons

In Oracle of Seasons, the Takkuri is a crow-like bird that swoops in to steal Link's Rupees.[citation needed]

The Minish Cap

In The Minish Cap, Takkuri steal Rupees. They are similar to Crows, which also appear, but they are red rather than black. They can be found in the Royal Valley. One Takkuri will swoop down and steal the Graveyard Key from Link. In order to retrieve the Key and progress to the Royal Family's Tomb, Link needs to use the Pegasus Boots and dash into the tree where the Takkuri is roosting.
