This is a guide to catching birds for farming Bird Feathers and Blue Bird Feathers in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD for the Nintendo Switch. Read on to learn tips to catch birds, how to use the Bug Net, as well as the best locations to farm birds!
|A net for catching small insects and other things.
The Bug Net can be obtained by buying it from Beedle's Shop in Skyloft for 50 Rupees, allowing you to catch birds for bird feathers.
Before catching the birds, identify first the feather you wish to get. Catching birds that are not blue-colored will give you Bird Feathers, while birds that are blue-colored will give you Blue Bird Feathers.
Birds will fly away from you when you run to them. To prevent that, slowly approach the birds by lightly moving the Left Thumbstick. This allows you to sneak behind birds and easily catch them.
Use horizontal swipes when catching birds. Once you swing your Bug Net, birds near you will start to fly away, so it is better to wait for them to group up, then swiftly swipe your Bug Net left and right.
Note that birds that flew away will land back once you get far away.

Upgrade your Bug Net to Big Bug Net from the Scarp Shop in Skyloft Bazaar. This will give you a bigger Bug Net to catch birds more easily.
