PRECAUTIONS WHEN A BIRD GETS HURT OR INJURED WHILE FLYING KITES

Giving up flying kites entirely may not be to everyone’s liking. But there are certainly a few precautions we can all take when you see any bird or animal injured.


  • When a bird hits the ground, do not catch it immediately. Give it some time to gain stability on its own while protecting it from cats and dogs
  • If a bird has not received serious cuts and is able to fly, let it go. Do not hold the birds too tightly.
  • Do not feed them water
  • If a bird is badly injured and seems to require first aid, then cover its eyes with a soft cloth, like a sock. This will prevent them from fluttering their wings
  • Put the injured bird in an empty bucket and cover it with cloth until help arrives
  • Do not fly kites between 7 am and 9 am as well as between 5 pm and 7 pm. These are the hours when there are maximum birds in the sky.
