How Do I Know When There's a New Notice?

A yellow bird will be perched up on top of the bulletin board when there's a new notice on the bulletin board.

White Owl

If you check the bulletin board during the night, it will be a white owl instead. Use this to determine if you should check the bulletin board or not.

Can I Catch the Birds?

Like some bugs, the birds will fly away when you get too close. There's no way to make them stay, other than to keep your distance.

If you haven't checked the bulletin board yet, the birds will respawn after you enter a building. If you want to capture the moment, it's best to take a picture from a distance!
