Wildlife goes hand-in-hand with survival, and that rings just as true at survival-crafter Dinkum as it does anywhere else. While players have the option of simply eliminating all wildlife in the area, they can also capture creatures for a nice Dink bonus and some levels in the trapping certification path.
However, birds are a unique story. They require a bit of searching and planning, as well as special tools and materials, to successfully bring a bird home.

Find the ideal bird trap area
As with capturing wildlife, players should first scout the islands to find ideal trap locations. Find areas where several birds are flying around, ideally with little other wildlife around. If an area is too crowded, it’s possible that your trap will catch another animal instead.
Finding this area is the hardest part of bird trapping, so you’ll want to make sure you’re prepared for success once you’ve found it. Players should bring the following items with them when attempting to capture a bird:
- Catch cage (one cage for each catch attempt)
- Meat (for baiting, bring two per cage for backups)
Note that the first tier of traps (acquired by purchasing the first trapping certification) works just as well as the second (more expensive) tier.
How to set up a bird trap in Dinkum
Players should place the trap in the area where birds are flying and then place a piece of meat on the cage that is set up. Birds circle the cage, land, and then try to eat the meat.
It’s entirely possible for birds to stretch their necks over the cage to eat the meat and then leave. For this reason, it is important to bring several cuts of meat per cage per catch attempt. If there’s even a single bird nearby and it eats your meat without being caught, it’s time to move on: it won’t try to eat again.
Once the bird is captured, take the cage back to the animal collection point to send to the researchers.
