The Sand Bird is a bird completely made out of sand in Super Mario Sunshine. Its egg was found in Gelato Beach on the large tower, but the egg couldn't hatch because a large green Wiggler was surrounding it, and creatures known as Plungelos were standing on the round solar panels. After Mario got rid of them, the Sand Bird hatched, and Mario had to ride the bird to get Red Coins. After his flight with the Sand Bird, it didn't appear again.
