Ice Keese are a variation of Keese, encased in ice. Usually they freeze Link upon contact.

Ice Keese
Destroy it before it flies into
you!

Ice Keese in Ocarina of Time inhabit the Ice Cavern. They behave very much like the Fire Keese, flying around until they see Link, in which they will fly down to try to freeze him. After coming into contact with Link, they will turn into regular Keese. They are oftentimes found near Blue Fire, and if they fly right through the fire again, they will become Ice Keese once again. When they come into contact with Link, they will freeze him momentarily, potentially doing up to two hearts of damage if he does not escape fast enough.

Given their icy nature, it is best to defeat Ice Keese with projectiles, including the Hookshot or Bow and Arrow. If there are multiple Keese right on top of you, Din's Fire also works well.

You know about the Ice Keese,
right? Destroy it before it
swoops down on you. I hate the
c-c-cold!

Twilight Princess

Once again, Ice Keese are found in frozen areas, such as Snowpeak and its ruins. There are also some found on floors 21, 35, and 38 of the Cave of Ordeals.

Phantom Hourglass

In Phantom Hourglass, Ice Keese are found exclusively in the Temple of Ice. They can be defeated with any projectile or explosive weapon, including the Boomerang, Bow and Arrow, or Bombs.

Spirit Tracks

Ice Keese are found in the Snow Temple and other locations in the Snow Realm. Ice Keese behave in the same way as regular Keese, but if there is a frozen torch in the area, a Keese may run into it and become an Ice Keese. Touching one will result in Link being frozen, so a long-range weapon is recommended when fighting these enemies.

Breath of the Wild

These Keese appear exclusively in the colder regions of Hyrule, including the Hebra Mountains, Gerudo Highlands, as well as the areas around Mount Hylia, Mount Lanayru, and the peaks of the Crenel Hills. They have 1 HP like all other Keese that appear in the game. If Link comes into contact with one, he will freeze up for a short period of time. They drop Ice Keese Wings and Keese Eyeballs. Ice Wizzrobes and Blizzrobes are able to summon one during combat.
