The skeletons of birds need to be lightweight which helps them to fly easily as the skeleton of a bird is light but it is strong enough to handle the force during flight. Birds have hollow bones which help them to keep them lightweight and help them to fly. They also have smooth feathers which reduces the force of weight. So We can say that the birds have very light and hollow bones to make them lightweight and hence help them in flying.
