Elden Ring: All Deathbird & Death Rite Bird Boss Locations

Throughout the Lands Between, you’ll sometimes stumble upon something that wants you dead, like a secret boss! Here’s where you can find every Deathbird & Death Rite Bird in Elden Ring.

Winged creatures come in all shapes and sizes in FromSoftware’s latest release. One minute you’re dodging explosives thrown by hard-to-hit Warhawks, the next you’re running away from the burning breath of a Dragon!

But, somewhere in between lies the Deathbird and their slightly larger, more deadly relative, the Death Rite Bird.

With one inexplicable exception, these enemies only spawn at night, so check out our guide to all Sites of Grace. Fast travel to the closest one and you’ll be able to wait until nighttime to take on these bosses.

Here are the locations of each bird boss, starting with the lesser Deathbirds!

And if you prefer to patrol the dark, here’s where you can find another group of secret night bosses – The Night’s Cavalry.
