Your Birds (4 out of 5)
It is easy to add new birds to your game and you start with the ability to hold up to six birds in your cage. Your birds will start out young and eventually reach adulthood and be able to breed. Once your birds are fully grown you can sell them too for coins or just keep them in your cage. As you level you will unlock more cages and the ability to house additional birds. When you buy a bird you can accept the default name or give your bird a name. You can provide food and water for your birds with the various feeder you will find in the store. Once your birds hunger meter drops they will want to be fed so be sure to keep your feeders full. You will also need to periodically clean the birdcage with the sweeper tool. If you have Facebook friends playing the game you can visit their cages and clean them which will yield you more coins.
Decorating Your Cage (4 out of 5)

You can add additional perches for your birds to sit on, different colored feeders, bird houses, and even bird toys at the higher levels.

Using the tool will allow you to refill the water and food trays too which will yield you some experience points.
Conclusion (3 out of 5)
Birdland is a fun game to play if you enjoy birds to any degree. The game is essentially the same as the aquarium games you will find on Facebook just substituting birds for fish. The game has a lot of different birds to add to your cages and variety in the items you can buy in the game store. It has a nice catchy soundtrack and looks nice graphically. On the negative side the mini game you can play for more coins is not the greatest and could use some work.
