Ely, this happens to me as well, every time. I'm on an android. After the first one, exit the game and clear your game cache. Then go back in. When I do this, I get a new birdie with a video. I have to clear the cache after every video, but I get all 6 prizes and the bonus chest this way. Hope it works for you!


That might work in Android, but it had no effect on my ipad. It didn’t come back so after 2 or 3 hours, I cleared history and cookies and reset the advertising identifier and it has still not come back.

I found that trick too but . . . he just seems to disappear as soon as i've done 5 of the 6-just doesn't come back for the 6th :cry:
and also that game is on android. strangely enough they seem to have stopped giving me the back to back-now it's just occasionally and it has crashed my game a few times too. and, despite have all my sounds off on both the device and the game-i still hear the ads :o

they need to revise the android beta

Strange, I sent a message to the Game Support and they quickly replied that it wasn't a common issue (the Island TV crashing the game) and basically said that they weren't going to do anything about it because it didn't effect many players. However, the fact that it's a known issue on the Forum says otherwise.

well, my game re-started/closed all together a few times yesterday right after he visited. but if they aren't doing anything about it, not much i can do? just hope it doesn't happen while on on TF with a timed request-will keep in mind to ignore the bird during those :D

I prefer the game to commercials and the annoying bird on my island. Thanks.

Yes, clearly, for our next builder event we need a build-it-yourself surface to air missile.

Come to th8nk of it, we already have all the ingredients we’d need to build Captain Kirk’s Gorn cannon - bamboo, rope, gems. He had to make do with charcoal and sulfur, but we already have black powder.

Darn! I was able to get the bonus every time. And I haven't had game crashes from it. I wonder if it depends on which version or update of android you have.

who knows? i sent in my info to PB hoping they can figure out what's up. so far today i've managed to get 5/6 and about 35 min left on the timer before it re-sets to see if the bird comes the 6th time or not? a few times i had to re-start after getting a dud bird and it came back after re-setting but still waiting for that 6th bird :roll:

good news, it hasn't crashed my game yet today :lol:

yup, sure enough he didn't come the 6th time. :lol:
