Dark Souls 3: All Crow’s Nest Trade Items - Pickle Pee, Pump-a-Rum Crow

All tradable items at the Firelink Shrine crow's nest.

Each Dark Souls game features peculiar unseen crows who will exchange items with the player through a nest. In Dark Souls 3, this invisible trader is found upon the rooftop of Firelink Shrine. This guide will show you how to find the crow’s nest, and lists every tradable item along with what you will receive in return.

If you've played the previous Dark Souls games, you are probably familiar with Snuggly the Crow, or Dyna and Tillo. In Dark Souls 3, another invisible trade crow (or crows?) is available just outside of Firelink Shrine.

The unseen crows in previous Dark Souls games typically asked for items that had a specific property. Snuggly wanted items that were warm and soft, while Dyna and Tillo wanted items that were silky or smooth. However, it's hard to tell what property the crow in Dark Souls 3 is looking for, so we've put together a list of tradeable items below to make things easier.

To locate the crow’s nest, you must first gain access to the locked tower beside Firelink Shrine. Purchase the Tower Key from the Shrine Handmaid for 20,000 souls, then go up the staircase to the second floor of Firelink Shrine. Exit through the rounded archways on the right that lead outside toward a large mysterious tree.

Continue up the staircase past the tree to reach the locked tower gate. A small ladder should be to your left. Use the Tower Key to unlock the tower gate, and proceed up the spiral stairwell. Upon reaching the bridge that connects the two towers, walk about halfway down the bridge, and face the rooftop to the left.

Drop down off the edge of the bridge and land on the rooftop. Go towards the center point of the rooftop to find a large birds nest. As you approach the nest, you will hear a voice that squawks, “You, you. Me, me, pickle pee! Me me, pump-a-rum!” This is the voice of a strange invisible crow who will trade specific items with you via the crow’s nest.

To trade an item, stand in the crow’s nest, and choose an item from your inventory that you wish to trade. Select the item in your inventory menu, then select Leave to place the item in the nest. If the unseen crow accepts the trade, you will receive one or more new items in the nest. If not, the crow will give a verbal indication.

Below is a list of all tradeable crow’s nest items, along with what you can expect to receive in return. You can only trade one of each item type per playthrough. However, this resets during a New Game Plus playthrough. Remember to return to this nest to trade for fun or useful items throughout your journey.

If you drop down off the side of the rooftop, you will find a small opening leading to a walkway beneath the nest. Investigate this area for hidden collectible items. Also, be sure to kick down the ladder that you saw to the left of the tower gate. This ladder will allow you to have easy access to the rooftop without having to ascend the tower stairwell.
