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.

    I think it can puff up to bigger size like orange bird but it will be lighter and rise upwards to pop balloons :)

    I don’t think so.
    The pink bird most likely as a space alter ego, so rovio would need to show the normal bird first.

    By jeff

    what about ice.hrm.if you saw a few cuts. and look att the background theres a million eggstroids.

    By Turtleboy

    It will not show up in Seasons, because Valentines day is over. I think it will fallow up in the “Surf and Turf” level pack because it hasn’t fully come yet. I don’t think that it was the first female because in the “Hogs and Kisses” in Angry Bird Seasons the Red Female Bird appeared in several images and the logo for that month, so also the egg-dropping female white bird.

    Rank: Sling God with 29280 points

    Can’t be Surf and Turf. We already know the last 15 levels from Facebook. The fact that Valentine’s Day has passed seems irrelevant.

    If that white bird is a female (yes I have seen the illustration where “it” is wearing the ribbon in “its” hair), then it has to be the ugliest female I have ever seen. I hope that comment doesn’t offend anyone. ;)

    @dollarbill2208, got a little song for ya: ‘Bill, she loves you so and always will….”. WB may not be ‘beautiful’ (according to who’s idea of that?) but she sure can drop those eggs. Strategically, her ability to do the egg drop comes in quite handy and the other birds might be lost without her. :-)

    I’ll say this about the White Bird, if Rovio says female, it’s female.

    Back on topic, this is pretty interesting! Perhaps it will have some sort of egg power because only female birds lay eggs. Or something to do with hearts(I kinda get that feeling from this).

    New female bird, great.
    Makes one wonder about her game format:
    1. In the new Mars game levels for Space this Fall.
    2. In the last 15 levels of Surf and Turf, at the beach.
    3. In a 2012 Seasons addition with women worldwide themes, holidays, events, etc.
    4. Or a whole new AB Game, now that would be something on the creative and marketing end of the business.
    Also, what will be her powers to destroy the pigs?

    1) Possibly, but with the recent addition of Orange Bird, perhaps a little unlikely?
    2) No, we have already seen the last 15 levels of S&T via Facebook. I don’t expect such a drastic change.
    3) I think Seasons is most likely. Perhaps not a female-centric episode (Women’s History Month is in March), but I like Seasons most.
    4) Also possible, though I would have expected teasers for the app before teasers for a bird.

    @BBinMiami – why does there have to be a specific gender theme to have a female bird? Can they just have one to have one? Saying they need to have a feminine theme in order to have a female bird comes off as a bit sexist..

    What great hypotheses on what the new AB Girl Bird will be like! Perhaps she will be like “Mata Hari” and be deceptively flirty towards the ignorant piggies? Then she’ll just smack them down with their smirking faces! Yeah. If Pink Bird is in AB Space, maybe she’ll have the ability to shoot laser balls from her winking, blinking eyes? That might be cool.

    It might be a power like the Angry Birds Cheetos bag! For example, it might act like a bomb and release 3 or 4 small heart bombs, and not be able to use her power after hitting a structure like the white bird. Being both female. This is not fact, just an Idea.

    I’m going with a seasons release within the next month for her and here’s why:
    1: she is not a space bird. her coloring is pretty flat like the other regular birds. The space birds have more gradients and shading, more detail. I know you only see her eye lids but I think it’s enough.
    2: it’s def not surf and turf or ABO because we just got one and the final 15 are already on Facebook meaning the wont add a new bird in for the mobile release once the levels have already been designed and bird order has been made.
    3: we know the next update for space is Mars and comig in the fall. Since I mentioned I don’t think she is a space release above that means she is coming before the fall.
    4: Seasons is the only plausible conclusion since , IMO Rio is done (until the movie sequel release).
    My deduction is that it will be release next thurs or the following in a Chinese Holiday themed update. This thurs is just too close.
