    The plants look like they should be fine. How do you know it was a bird? I feel like a bird would have done more damage.
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    You should check and see if the growing point is still there and not damaged. If it isn't damaged, it should be fine. If it is, then you should probably take some leaf pullings.

    Your sundew should be just fine, the growth point doesn't look like it was touched. Leaf pullings on your flytrap might be a good idea if the growth point is gone. I can't see it in the photos at least. Where in the world are you growing? If that black net was your cage you might want to change it to something stiff like an old birdcage. I used an abandoned guinea pig cage when I grew outdoors to keep animals out.

    If you're in South Asia you have a few more things to consider down the line. Dionea are temperate plants and die eventually if not given a cold winter dormancy. Look into the fridge dormancy method so you know what to do when your plants do start showing signs of dormancy.

    That is why you want to take a few leaf pullings, for insurance. If the plant fails to send up a new growth point it'll probably die away. But with the leaf pullings you'll be able to start over and not lose the plant completely.
