I was thinking of doing the "One For Sorrow Two For Joy (Level IV) in a few weeks thinking it'd be easy to get a magpie chick, when I read that nesting birds give tasks. I've never had any of the chicks done, and I read that different birds give different tanks, but could you give me an example of what the tasks are?
The task is always to spot your next multiple of five of a certain bird in other gardens.
From this thread: https://www.fairylandgame.com/fbfairy/forums.php?tid=34384
"The birds will not always tell you to spot their own kind, instead they will give you a task to spot any of the 4 birds within it's "group".
Group 1: Wren, Yellow Wagtail, Chaffinch, Singing Bush Lark
Group 2: Nightingale, Bee Eater, Roadrunner, Waxwing
Group 3: Kingfisher, Oriole, Chickadee, Blue Jay
Group 4: Woodpecker, Magpie, Jackdaw, Crane
The Cuckoo is the only bird not included in any of these groups. It is the only bird that will ask you to find other Cuckoos, but it can also ask you to find any of the birds in any of the groups at random."
I see, thanks Claire!
Is the task about spotting a multiple of 10 of a bird? I read in that thread : I will lay my egg after you have spotted your 90th Wren in other Gardens (you have so far spotted 87, which means you still need to spot another 3.)
So if it asks me to spot a crane.. I'll have to spot 10 cranes before I get an egg? (I have 0 cranes spotted so far).
Oh sorry I am blind, it does say it needs a multiple of five.
No worries. It's always the next multiple of five so depending on which bird you get and how many you've already spotted, you'll need to spot between 1 and 5 each time.
Good thing I asked nice and early to alter my quest planning. Thank you Claire!
