Wrong timing[edit source]

Every single bird in my journal was NOT found on the hour / half hour, the spawned seemingly randomly, usually around 15 past and 45 past the hour. 11:14, April 19, 2017 (UTC)Oggie

We know, the articles (this one and ones for the specific birds) mention that the time might be different. If you can figure out what the exact timing it then please let us know, because we have received different reports of birds appearing at :00 & :30, :50 & :10, :40 & :20, etc. It seems to have a weird interval, but we don't know what it is, and the jmods won't inform us of the correct interval. :( Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 11:42, April 19, 2017 (UTC)
Someone on the RS forums claims that the Gongdung Peligorn spawns at :00 and :30. Did someone else also ancounter this?The Green Butterfly (talk) 21:34, 21 February 2019 (UTC)
Yes, I have. :P Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 08:26, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
Good to know that guy on the forums isn't halucinating. I've added it to the article.The Green Butterfly (talk) 08:35, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
I don't think it's specifically the Gongdung Peligorn that spawns at that time. I believe that just after reset the birds (any of them that are day-specific) spawn at :00 and :30 and then slowly there's some interval that changes it to :15 and :45 and then back to :00 and :30 eventually. We really need a confirmation from Jagex to get this ironed out, but the spawn isn't :00/:30 or :15/:45 during the whole day, I'm convinced it shifts from one to the other and then back to the original one. So I'll remove your statement from the page. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 08:51, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
So it could be similar to the Goblin Raids then? They also spawn every thirty minutes and 0-10 seconds, so it's easy to predict when the next one comes, but quite impossible to determine when they spawn the day after.The Green Butterfly (talk) 09:29, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
That's possible as Jagex could've reused it for the birds, but without staking out one or more birds for 24 hours or by getting confirmation from Jagex this is just a theory. :S Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 09:47, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
I'll see if some people in the forums with some time on their hands are willing to stake out at some birds. Unfortunately there are no game messages about the birds spawning, so the stakers should type something in their chat box with time stamps turned on. Might be worth a shot.The Green Butterfly (talk) 10:17, 22 February 2019 (UTC)

Talk to Billy?[edit source]

The guide says talk to Billy to get hints about birds. All he has said to me is the generic info that's in the transcriptions: birds come at different times, areas, or drawn by skilling. He isn't giving any new specific info such that the player should visit him regularly "for hints"? Pokemama1 (talk) 23:54, May 3, 2017 (UTC)
