The Birds Zone Event

You can buy a lure to summon the event from the event quartermaster.

Planar Beacon: The Birds

The Event is Death themed and the zones can get very busy!
You can use a zone event tracker like YARET to see when the event is running.
Make sure someone is defending then go kill stuff.
MENTOR DOWN for the boss so you get credit towards your quest.
Make sure to kill it slowly to allow other people to get there and get credit.
In Stillmoor and Shimmersand it will sometimes not give credit even if you mentor to 5 levels above the boss, Its best to mentor to 51 in these zones.

LOOT – The call to action events drop unique dimension items and costume items. You can see a list of loot drops on the call to action main page

The Birds zone event also has specific drops that can only be looted from these events, including a rare chance to loot the bird pets that are available from the store.

The Budgie Races

If you are over level 50 then I recommend doing the Cape Jule or Pelladane race, this is because they start and finish right next to portals, so very little unnecessary travelling.
When you pick up the quest you will be teleported to the start circle and a countdown will start, you need to roughly follow the race track path hitting all the white checkpoints til you reach the end. The checkpoints are marked on your map with a small yellow quest dot. You can go off the track to avoid the red circles. If you do accidentally hit a red then you can use the speed buff (button 1) to get rid of the debuff.

White Circles – Checkpoints that you have to tick off as you go through the race track.
Green Circles – Give you a charge of Endurance which you can use to boost your speed by pushing the ‘Terminal Velocity’ button on your temp ability bar.
Red Circles – Applies a debuff to you that slows you down. Try to go around them!

If you stand still for too long then you will be kicked off the mount and fail.
You have 2 mins 40 seconds to finish.
At the end of the race there is an NPC to hand in the quest to.

Checkpoint slow to register
The checkpoints can often be very slow to register that you have gone over them. If you miss a waypoint then you will need to go backwards to tag it. It is better to pause for a few seconds on each checkpoint and make sure it ticks off before heading to the next one. This will save you time!

Chicken Run!

Completing all the races will award you the cheevo Chicken Run!
Defiants will race through Freemarch and Guardians will race through Silverwood. Both factions will race through Cape Jule and Pelladane.

Low Level Players
A low level (from level 10) player can be sidekicked up and then summoned to Cape Jule or Pelladane to take part in the races there. There is no need to do this though as you can just do the Freemarch/Silverwood races.
