I am using the current beta and experienced something I never have before.

Started a new game.  Kaumo character in the kaumo area.

Found a lake just north of a cluster of villages that was very good for fishing.  Also some berry bushes in the area.  So I set up camp and started building.

As things progressed, a few birds flew around so I placed three loop snares.

And it began... birds.  MORE birds. and MORE BIRDS.

So many that I finally stopped skinning them and just burned the bodies.

This happened through the spring and summer.  It finally eased off as winter came back.

But... they... ate... everything... all the bushes... most of my crops...

It was horrible... I was having nightmares...

lol  :P

And the spirits, with their improved presence, must be super happy with your character now ;)

Out of curiosity, which species the birds were?

Many different types. 

Black grouse
Hazel grouse
Willow grouse (a lot of these)
Ducks.
May have been others (not at home right now).

No Ravens.
-----------
Was able to find cloud berries later, since by then the birds had all been (viciously) killed by an angry kaumo. lol...

But cannot confirm if any other berries are available elsewhere in the world. I despaired of finding any at the time...

Its was just... UNREAL!   :P

Its always good to skin birds even if its just for the feathers.

drop the the actual skin after you skin the animal and press shift+D to discard it.

Feathers dont rot, so just leave them on the ground near your camp.

Later on you might want to use the feathers to make your own arrows.

Made arrows a plenty. Don't need more... lol

Forgot about shift D, though. Had some grasses I pulled up that wouldn't burn. Need to use it on those.
