Birdhouses and You!

Post by eoinc on Thu Mar 08, 2018 10:45 pm

Hi all, welcome to another one of my guides. This one will be covering some relatively new content that can pay off pretty handily. I am talking of course about birdhouses.

The materials for the birdhouses include a clockwork and a log, depending on your crafting and hunter level. I recommend going by your lowest of these two skills, as you get the clock work back. It would be a waste of time and money to just wait for them to buy in the GE for an overpriced value. Here are the tables for the crafting and hunting levels for birdhouses.



These are found on fossil island in four different locations. Two of them are in the Verdant Valley, one is in the north of the Mushroom Meadow, and one is by the entrance to the Sticky Swamp. Due to the locations of the spots, I recommend finding all of the mushroom transit system stops to save a lot of time.

Map on where to find the birdhouses:


Verdant Valley:


Mushroom Meadow:


Sticky Swamp (I just run down from the Mushroom Meadow Birdhouse):



I also recommend obtaining the House on the Hill teleport on the Digsite Pendant, which is done by using the pendant on the Strange Machine there.



The birdhouses are made by having a hammer and chisel in your inventory and using the clockwork on the birdhouse. The bait, which is required, is hops seeds, doesn’t matter which type, just pick the cheapest. Each birdhouse requires 10 seeds to be put into the birdhouses to start working. It takes an hour for all the seeds to be used, and all the birds to be caught. I sync up my birdhouses with my herb runs, because it’s an easy transition from one run to the other. A run hardly takes more than a minute if you’re running.

Example Inventory:



Birdhouses are a good source of hunter xp, crafting xp, and some nice farming resources. I took a picture of about 50 birdhouse loots to give you a picture of what you can get.




The seeds are random like miscellania, although no bird eggs if you’re into that stuff. The nests are my favorite part though, they sell well and are used in Saradomin Brews, which should sell well. Overall, birdhouse hunting is a nice afk way to train Hunter while still getting good xp and resources.

Hope you liked my guide! I’ll be back with more vague content soon =].

this is excellent, I made few when they first came out and I was hunting herbivores, as part of my running around.
Now I can see its a huge benefit doing them, thank you so much for the guide. Smile

In today's OSRS update, birdhouses got a nice update:

1. Your seeds automatically fill to the max available. Originally, you had to select how many you wanted to put in.

2. The bird meat automatically drops to the ground, so you don't have to manually drop it.

Very nice, and saves a few seconds for sure.

Found this very useful, seems there is a lot of stuff on Fossil Island I don't know about.

Some more loot info; This is from 80 magic birdhouses or 20 birdhouse runs.

Averaging 70k profit a run with 5k resource cost in magic logs, seeds and the occasional jewellery teleport.
