The Yellow Bird (Japanese: 黄色の鳥 Kiiro no tori) is a minor character from the Animal Crossing series, and one of the only non-anthropomorphic animals seen throughout the series. First appearing in, the Yellow Bird appeared on top of the message board when new messages were posted. Their role was expanded in , as multiple Yellow Birds appear on Main Street after a renovation. At night, the one that sits on the message board is replaced by the White Owl in New Leaf.
The Yellow Bird once again returns in My Animal Crossing, and has a similar task as per the previous games. Unlike other games, the Yellow Bird is referred to as a female by the normal villagers. Like before, the Yellow Bird sits on the message board when there is an unread message posted. Three Yellow Birds also appear on a shop once it has been renovated, but fly away when approached.
Kiki often mentions the Yellow Bird, and calls it the "best singer ever".
