Birds and Flocks Hearthfire Edition

-- NOTICE 10/25/2016 --

Unfortunately, I don't have time to continue offering further support/updates for my mods. I am unaware at this time how mods like this one will work with the Skyrim Remaster which is due out in a few days, but I am posting this as notice in advance and from here on that I won't be able to help resolve issues you may run into in Skyrim or the Skyrim Remaster.


IMPORTANT: This mod is currently not compatible with the Unofficial Hearthfire Patch. Using this mod with the Unoffocial Hearthfire Patch will cause Windstad to disappear or never show up.


This is the HEARTHFIRE EDITION of Birds and Flocks. If you do not own the official Hearthfire expansion for Skyrim, do NOT download this file.

The original Birds and Flocks is NOT COMPATIBLE with Hearthfire.

The Birds and Flocks Hearthfire Edition will NOT WORK on your system without Hearthfire.

This mod IS compatible with Dragonborn and Dawnguard.

The only difference between the two versions is their compatibility with Hearthfire.

If you are switching from the original Birds and Flocks mod to the Birds and Flocks Hearthfire Edition, first disable and/or uninstall the ORIGINAL "Birds.esp" using the Skyrim launcher's "Data" menu, and then subscribe to this version.

The ORIGINAL Birds and Flocks can be found here:


Adds dozens and dozens more instances of birds that fly away when startled by the player or another creature.

Also adds many more circling birds of prey along cliffs, tundras, forests and mountains.

Now includes more bats in dungeons.

This mod is compatible with Hearthfire, the original Birds and Flocks isn't. Both mods have been reported to conflict with Unofficial patches.

Is this incompatible with Unofficial Legendary Patch, or only just Hearthfire?

This mod has been included in "THE ULTIMNATE LORE FRIENDLY SKYRIM MODS COLLECTION", updated 07/13/2016. Thank you for your wonderful addition to this collection. Please check it out at .

? What he's saying is most people "need" the hearth fire patch and since this conflicts with he or should just delete it.

hey Catman, the other hes says to uninstall is his own mod that this one is basicly just a patch for as this one works with but requires hearthfire, but the other one does not.

Also all you have to do is uninstall this mod, don't go telling a mod author to remove their mod simply because it conflicts with a mod you're using.

Error, unless you're using mods that use the unofficial patch you don't need unofficial hearthfire patch, stop telling false information. If you're not using the that patch then this mod is completely fine, "liar"

since most people need the patch fixes
it is easier to get rid of your mod

Hello error, thanks for getting in touch. This mod is compatible with Hearthfire, but currently conflicts with The Unofficial Hearthfire Patch (as noted at the top of the mod description) and possibly also Real Wildlife. If you have either of those two installed, you can try temporarily disabling them and see if the compatibility issues with BaF go away.

Unfortunately, I am very busy with work these days and don't even have the Creation Kit installed anymore, so my time for working on mods is incredibly limited, though I do try to stay around on the forums to answer questions.
