Kingdom Come Deliverance: A Bird in the Hand
Speak with Berthold in Rattay to begin this quest (you’ll find him behind the staircase leading to the northern castle). He has managed to lose some nightingales that he was tasked with looking after, and he asks Henry to help recover them. To aid with this, he gives you three empty bird cages, before dispatching you to Vranik forest to search for the birds.
Find the nightingales
The forest is located west of Rattay, but the yellow quest circle covers a few hundred square meters – how on earth are you supposed to find them? Thankfully, Berthold has imitated the noise that you should be listening out for, so finding the three birds is a simple matter of stopping whenever you hear the appropriate call, setting a trap and then waiting until the bird appears.
To save you some time, here are the places you’ll need to stop at to recover the birds:
The chirping will be unmistakable when you get there, and if you have a good sound system, you’ll be able to pinpoint exactly where to set each trap. To do so, open the inventory, switch to Other and click on the empty bird cages. Drop one, pull back, and then let two hours pass using the wait function. The cage should then be veiled with a cloth, which is your signal that a nightingale has fallen into your trap.
You can find and catch all three birds in a matter of minutes. It’s best to leave early in the morning, so you have enough light in the event that finding them takes longer than expected.
Return to Berthold and give him the nightgales, and you’ll be rewarded with 40 arrows and 50 Groschen.
