Bird Feathers in Skyward Sword: how to get them and what are they used for?
Bird Feathers Skyward Sword: How to Get
Before you really get going in collecting Bird Feathers, make sure you purchase a Bug Net from Beedle's Shop for 50 Rupees.
Once you have obtained your Bug Net, head to Faron Woods. Throughout the serene forest will be cute and tiny songbirds, the source of the Bird Feathers drop. Simply sneaky up to the songbirds as to not startle them, and start swinging away with your Bug Net to capture the plumage off the birds.
Bird Feathers are used for crafting some of the better shields in the game.
The real golden ticket item are Blue Bird Feathers, so keep an eye out for blue songbirds, as Blue Bird Feathers are much more valuable than the standard Bird Feathers.
There's no strict spawn locations for blue songbirds, so best keep your eyes peeled for any moving small blue thing, which will likely be a blue songbird.
Blue Bird Feathers are also on the loot table for getting at least 28 cuts in the Bamboo Cutting mini-game.
