Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the fifth video game in the Elder Scrolls series from Bethesda Softworks. It is an epic adventure and an open-ended game of exploration. We find it both beautiful and entertaining and have been having fun playing it since it came out 11-11-11.
Skyrim is a large land full of forest, mountains, cities, and farms. As you travel around you encounter lots of wildlife including quite a few birds.
The scenery in the game is amazing and in between fighting trolls and giants you are immersed in the sights and sounds of nature (well, in a make-believe sort of way).
The following is a list of some of the birds we’ve found. This is just for fun!
- Blue Jay
- Song Sparrow
- American Robin
- Northern Cardinal
- Black-capped Chickadee
- Rock Warbler (nest)
- Pine Thrush (nest)
- farm chicken
- Pheasant (dead)
- Hawk (we’ll call it the Skyrim Hawk)
- Great Horned Owl
- Mourning Dove
- Ovenbird [thanks to Hipstermama]
There are also lots of mammals running around:
- saber cat (like a tiger)
- skeever (rat)
- horse (which you can own/ride)
You can “collect” insects as well such as bees, butterflies and dragonflies. There are also lots of fish species, most common seeming to be salmon.
The game is fun and the background sounds of birds signing early morning and at dusk is realistic. The night sounds are full of owls, wolves, and frogs.
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a fun exploration escape now that it gets dark at 4:30 PM!
