Bird-Masked Man (Lorulean counterpart)

The Bird Lover is a character who appears in A Link Between Worlds. He can be found Under the Bridge to the east of Link's House. He spends his time there playing with several birds. He likes birds because there is no way of knowing what is going on inside of their heads.[1] According to him, he would rather let the world above the bridge pass him by.[2]

When Link approaches him, he scares away the birds and the Bird Lover, disappointed by their departure, asks if Link dislikes his "feathered friends".[3] If Link says he does like birds, the Bird Lover explains that they always cheer him up with their joyful mannerisms, and he wishes that he could fly with them.[4] He then asks if Link needs anything.[5] Link can either reply that he does not need anything, or that he wants to talk to him. Either way, the Bird Lover is surprised that he went so far out of the way.[6][7]

The Bird Lover then tells Link that he found a Bottle washed up nearby a while ago.[8] However, with Link's appearance, he thinks that he has had too much excitement and asks Link to take the Bottle to calm down his nerves.[9]
