The Birdwing is a rare bug first introduced in Animal Forest e+.


[edit] How to Catch

The Birdwing is a rare butterfly and can only be found sitting on or flying around flowers. Since the Birdwing likes to fly around flowers you will have to be cautious when swinging your net to avoid killing the flowers. The Birdwing is quite noticeable because of its size and can be seen from a distance. Its also not a very fast flying bug.

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"Hoo my, what a butterfly... I now see why it's touted as the world's largest butterfly, eh wot? I'd heard the wings of this particular butterfly can extend over a foot...but up close, they look bigger still! If one of these flew into me while I was out flying... I'd likely pass out in horror and plummet on the spot!"
