Songbirds are a type of bird found in Red Dead Redemption. They are blue and yellow in color and are very small. They are found abundantly throughout the frontier. They are easily recognized by their bright plumage and small size.


Songbirds can be shot and plucked. They drop feathers that may be sold to merchants for a slightly higher price than Crows, Vultures, and the like. They can be identified by their brightly colored feathers in blue and yellow.

Songbirds are very common everywhere; simply walking through the landscape will reveal songbirds flying by. They can also be seen perched in towns or in trees. Open fire into random bushes and trees, and different kinds of songbirds may fly out. Songbirds also vary from other birds by the way they quickly flap their wings whilst in flight, and their fast speed while flying. They resemble the real world Indigo Bunting and Common Yellowthroat.

Like most dead targets, a dead songbird becomes an x on the minimap when Marston kills it and is close enough to it.

Rarely, a red colored songbird may be seen, particularly in Mexico.
