Return the flying bird phantasms to their rightful places puzzle solution in Genshin Impact

Golden Aqueduct Reconstruction: Part I

The first puzzle is located northwest of the Sea of Bygone Eras. Once you're in the location Scylla points you to, interact with the mechanism in front of the mural to trigger a small puzzle. You must align the horn with the image of the horn in the mural, so move it slightly left and downward until they are completely aligned. Once done, the birds will start flying around the map.

Your goal is to lead the stray birds toward their designated positions in the mural, just like Seelies. There's one bird to the left of the mural, one in front of the horn, and one on top of a pink sea plant. Approach them to trigger them to fly, and continue leading them to their positions until they stop moving. Once done, claim your Exquisite Chest reward and follow the birds out of the cave to trigger a cutscene of the Aqueduct repair.

Like before, start by interacting with the mechanism in front of the mural to operate it. You need to align the horn on the mechanism with the horn in the painting by moving the camera angle. Move it a few clicks to the right and a few clicks up until they are completely aligned. Once done, the birds will start moving around.

You need to send three flying bird phantasms to their rightful positions. Switch to a bow user and shoot at the floating Anemo Slimes blocking the bird's path on the right. The bird will fly for a bit, but the Slimes will reappear to block its path. You need to shoot them a second time so the bird can finally stay in place.

The two remaining birds are located in hard-to-reach places: one directly in front of the mechanism and one on top of the horn. While you can cheese the puzzle by using Wanderer to fly or Geo Constructs to elevate your character, it's much easier to use the environment to solve it.

To the left of the mechanism, you'll find a pink floating jellyfish, which works similarly to Sumeru's Bouncy Mushrooms. Jump on the jellyfish to propel your character upward, allowing you to touch one of the birds and prompt it to move like a Seelie.

Two more jellyfish will appear. Carefully glide onto them and use them to propel yourself upward, allowing you to reach the bird on top of the horn and guide it to its rightful position in the mural.

Once done, a small cutscene of the flying birds will play. Don't forget to claim your Exquisite Chest reward before following the birds out of the cave to watch them repair the Golden Aqueduct. Another cutscene will play to signify its completion.
