The Gold Bird is a harmless critter. It is a rare, golden recolor of an ordinary Blue Jay, with a 1/150 chance of spawning in place of all ordinary Bird variants.

As with all other gold critters, it can be caught with a Bug Net and sold for 10.

It is one of the few entities that can be detected by the Lifeform AnalyzerDesktop, Console, and Mobile versions or its upgrades.
