This mod will add in dozens and dozens more instances of birds that fly away when startled by either the player or another creature. The effect is one that already exists in the game but was used very rarely, so I expanded its use.
This mod also adds in many more circling birds of prey along cliffs, tundras, forests, and mountain ranges.
Now includes more bats in dungeons!

Birds and Flocks uses under-utilized vanilla assets to add many additional immersive encounters with birds and bats by adding additional activators for such encounters. As such, it is highly compatible out-of-the-box with minimal conflicts. The only affected mods are those that edit cell records, such as lighting mods. I have provided patches for ELFX, ELFX Hardcore, Lux, Lux Orbis, and ELE. Can do more upon request.

Thank you to dovahsbane for permission to port this to Special Edition, as the previous port has been removed.
In addition to updating the form ID, I have also:
-flagged as ESL
-updated all the water flow records
-cleaned ITM (identical to master) records
-removed empty cell & worldspace records
-removed dirty edits
-removed new cells
-forwarded survival mode records
-forwarded fixes from SLaWF
-forwarded changes from USSEP

If you are interested in collaborating on Overhaul projects, or levelling up your experience of modding Skyrim, please join my discord server, Skypocalypse.

Skypocalypse is above all a place for COLLABORATION, a community hub for mutual aid to level up our skills and Skyrim itself.
This server is the host to Skypocalypse Academy, where modders and porters of all skill and experience levels assist each other as we dive ever deeper into transforming the bones of this magical game. Featuring an extensive library of tools and resources, The Academy is meant to be as educational as it is welcoming.
We know from experience that modding is an extremely addictive past-time and can be a slippery slope from creating a simple load order to porting mods to going full boat and attempting to rebuild Skyrim from the ground up. That's why we believe in a community that integrates Xbox and PC gamers along with porting noobs and experienced mod authors. We all have more to learn, and modding Skyrim to its extreme is a community effort to say the least.
Skypocalypse is meant to be a gaming community that supports collaborative efforts. The gaming and social channels here are intended to foster the social connections that help act as glue for our collaborative work.
