If you're a fan of "Angry Birds," you may have noticed that there are a long list of achievements you can earn while playing the game. Some of these achievements require that you collect a certain amount of feathers. You can collect feathers only when using the Mighty Eagle and reaching Total Destruction at 100 percent. You can only earn one feather per level.
Replaying a Level for Total Destruction
Complete one "Angry Birds" level.
Replay the level and select the eagle eye icon next to the "Pause" button. Your slingshot will be loaded with a can of sardines.
Shoot the can of sardines at the pigs mocking you. A giant eagle will swoop down for the sardines and cause a lot of damage.
Continue shooting sardines until you have reached total destruction at 100 percent. You will earn one feather.
Repeat Steps 1 to 4 to collect enough feathers to reach the achievements -- 50 for Feather Picker, 100 for Feather Collector and 200 for Feather Gatherer.
Using the Mighty Eagle to Beat a Level
Begin playing a level as usual, using birds to knock down some of the pigs' walls.
Select the eagle eye icon next to the pause button when you know you can do a lot of damage with your next shot. Your slingshot will be loaded with a can of sardines.
Shoot the can of sardines at the pigs. A giant eagle will swoop down and cause damage.
Shoot down the rest of the pigs and the pigs' buildings with birds so that you reach total destruction at 100 percent. You will then earn one feather.
Wait an hour to use the Mighty Eagle on the next level. You can only use it once per hour on levels you have not defeated yet.
Knowing when to use the Mighty Eagle is key to getting 100 percent total destruction. If you knock down barrier walls first, sometimes you can shoot sardines further, causing more damage.
