Why don't birds get burned when they fly too close to the sun?
- 1 year agoFavourite answer
The sun is for sure way too far away for them to get burned. On a super hot, sunny day I can see why you might think that. There are different oils on their feathers that protect them from water when it rains. The way that their feathers are designed can help them do many things and protect them from many things. But, like I, and many other comments said, the sun is too far away to burn a flying bird.

They use a high SPF sunscreen.

Because there's no way that they do (fly too close to the sun)!!

Some of the highest flying birds only get to 4 miles up and can't survive higher, then, it is another 93 million miles to the sun,,,go figure.

Impossible. They'd have to fly into space, and before they even get that high, they'll die from lack of oxygen and frostbite.

They're not flying close the sun. the sun is 93 million miles away. Plus, birds never break the atmosphere, which is what protects us from the sun. Also they have covering, namely feathers.
