What is the Bulletin Board

ACNH - Bulletin Board Notice.jpg
The Bulletin Board is a board where messages from players and villagers, as well as notices for events and birthdays are posted. It is located near the Resident Services building. It is recommended to make a habit out of checking the bulletin board every day for you to be aware of upcoming events happening on your island.

What Can You Do with the Bulletin Board

Aside from checking notices, you can put out your own notices for visitors and other players playing on the same system. You can also delete some messages if you feel like your bulletin board is getting cluttered.

Notices You Can Receive

  • Events
  • Birthdays
  • Nook's Cranny Announcements

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

Yellow Bird

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!

      Aspects of The legend of Zelda are on my island such as the lost wood and several scenes from majoras mask in my skull kid house.
      My island ranges from having Big Ben and Houses of Parliament to a bamboo jungle only accessible through warp pipe. There are five fully furnished houses on my island so prepare for a very full tour!
