The Bird Key is an item in Link's Awakening.[2][note 1]

Location and Uses

The Bird Key is located deep within a cave in Tal Tal Heights.[1] Unfortunately for Link, he cannot access it alone due to the huge pits in the cave. He must bring back the Flying Rooster to life by playing the Frog's Song of Soul then use its flying ability to fly over the pits.[1]

The Bird Key allows Link, by inserting it into the Bird Keyhole, to unlock access to the Eagle's Tower.[2]
