Is a Female Pink Bird Coming Soon to Angry Birds?

Thanks to the super sleuthing abilities of @Dr-Omega and abhijit, we have a first peek at a new bird coming to the Angry Birds franchise. Based on the picture posted by Rovio on their social media channels, it definitely seems to be a female pink bird (also being called the “Girlie Bird”)! This would be the first undeniably-female Angry Bird (since Jewel is a separate character who joined the Birds in Rio, and there is a cloud of controversy regarding the White Bird’s gender — though Rovio has addressed that before).

Update August 8th: We now know that the pink bird will appear in the Angry Birds Seasons Back to School update. This article also contains more info about the pink bird’s power / ability.

Back to topic. Here, we will only post the images that Rovio themselves have posted on their social media channels. But if you want a true spoiler, check out ToyWiz.com. They only sell Rovio-official plushies, so I think it’s pretty legitimate. Note that the product description is quite inaccurate, but other than that, you get the idea of roughly what the bird may look like.

I am guessing Rovio will continue to post teasers about this, and at this time there is an innumerable number of questions about this bird. What app will it first be released in? What apps will it inevitably be released in? When will it appear? What will its ability be? In any case, it will be exciting to watch for!

Update Aug. 07: A special thanks goes out to Rick Keyser who presented a truly-inspired guess to the release of the Female Pink Bird (now being called the “Girlie Bird” after some additional merchandise was found). His idea is that the Pink Bird will be released in a new episode of Angry Birds Seasons centered around the Chinese holiday of the Qixi Festival. This holiday, sometimes called Chinese Valentine’s Day, revolves around a love story, occurs at night (thus the caption “Who turned out the lights?”), and involves magpies. What’s better? Qixi Festival this year occurs on August 23rd, which fits the bill in oh-so-many ways. It’s a Thursday (Rovio’s favorite day to release updates, apparently). It’s about 2 weeks away, which is within the realm of Rovio’s teaser lengths. And finally, it a Far Eastern theme, which has been a major theme of the 2012 “Seasons” packages and part of Rovio’s expanding market. Is all this definite? Absolutely not. But we love to speculate since Rovio loves to tease.

Thanks to @lostgreybird, @dr-omega, and @oldmanbird for their contributions as well.

    Looks interesting! Love the updates put on by Rovio!

    Hello everyone! Sorry I’ve missed you… we moved this weekend and its been hard with the new house and stuff so i don’t have much time but now I have more time to be here!

    By Morph416

    Sweet!

    Lots of options here for another bird… maybe she can pair up with the red bird.. similar to Rio. Or maybe, when you click on her, she lets out a scream that shatters glass.. who knows! Gonna be interesting to see what Rovio has planned.

    As far as to what game she might appear in? Hmmmm.. taking a quick look at the FB Friends screen.. we seen a “female” bird there, right next to an Egg. The Egg showed up in Space.. there’s a new update for Space coming.. maybe she will make her first appearance in that version.

    Unless of course.. Rovio surprises us yet again, with an entirely new update to the other versions.. but I think we can assume to leave Rio out of it.

    I think Girly Bird’s power will be a kind of twisting thing where a kind of pink hurricane appears or maybe it goes straight down or maybe it could do something else I dont know Im just thinking these because they are not powers for any other birds yet

    It is correct, for the white bird and red bird, there are male and female versions. (The female birds are not playable, but they are on images shared by Rovio.)

    To be fair, the must also create a male version of the new pink bird.

    then maybe the white bird is always a female bird, even if “she” does not wear a bow and is without eyelashes and makeup.

    Guys! It’s obvious that the white bird is female! She has always been! When you unlock her in GC you get the achievement “Mother of all Bombs”. So she obviously is female!

    By AngryBirdsFanGuy438 (@angrybirdsfanguy438)

    Maybe Rovio originally had intended for White Bird to be female, but with the new White Bird in Hogs and Kisses… that just takes the cake. There’s no point in making a female version of a character who is already female is pointless, so I’m going with White Bird being male.

    I’m waiting for a fire themed bird that burns slowly through the wood (possible timer till the dynamite at the other end explodes) and melts the ice blocks. Doesn’t look fitting for pinky though ;)

    I think that the new bird’s power will have something to do with Light. Rovio rarely ever does a teaser like this without hinting at something through their wordage. I think “Who Turned the Lights Out” teases its association with either Light or Dark. I prefer Light. Also the Plush Toy has her mouth open, which makes her the only Plush with an open beak, making me think she possibly shoots a ray of light our of her mouth that pushes structures.

    I think that “she possibly shoots a ray of light our of her mouth that pushes structures” would be out of sense since that any type of ray won’t be able to push a structure.

    What about the Qixi Festival for China (Angry Bird Seasons)? The date would be August 23 this year and it revolves around a love story. Good reason to add Girly Bird.

    The story is of a forbidden love, making it the Chinese equivalent to Valentine’s Day. There was not a Valentine’s Day update for AB Seasons and as @lostgreybird said it’s on a Thursday in the near future, prior to the plush toy’s arrival date which is ideal for marketing purposes. If that’s not it then I am stumped.

    I just can’t keep thinking of it’s ability. I keep on thinking that it is like a reverse white bird, with an explodiing heart icon (like when cartoon characters fall in love) that goes upwards. What do you think?

    “when cartoon characters fall in love” — that is so funny, and so descriptive!

    Based on the new picture, I think Girly Bird is going to be similar to Orange Bird. There outlines seem to be very similar. The other item in the picture probably has something to do with her powers. A longshot guess but maybe she sends out a force around her (hearts maybe because it is a girl) that have the reverse effect of the Egg Bird in AB Space.

    Thank you to all of the admins here for keeping us informed. So much to look forward to :). Between this new bird and the coming Red Planet update, Rovio is keeping us very happy!!

    By KewlDood

    My guess is, that since Rovio likes to update on Thursdays, that the next update with the pink bird on seasons will be out either tomorrow, or next Thursday (hoping for the former, but most likely, the latter). Considering that they do their holiday themed updates well before the theme they are based on recently (for example, year of the dragon was released well before the chinese new year), my bet is, that this update will be released well before the Qixi festival as well.
