Birds are a group of warm-blooded animals classified as Aves. They have feathers, toothless beaked jaws, lay hard-shelled eggs, have a fast metabolic rate, a four-chambered heart, and a robust but lightweight skeleton.
Owls are members of the order Strigiformes, which contains over 200 species of mainly solitary and nocturnal birds of prey. They are distinguished by their upright posture, big, wide head, binocular eyesight, binaural hearing, keen claws, and feathers suited for quiet flight.
Columbidae is a family of birds that includes pigeons and doves. The order Columbiformes has just one family. These are robust birds with short necks and short, thin bills that have fleshy ceres in certain species. They are mainly seed, fruit, and plant feeders.
Hummingbirds are Americas-native birds that belong to the biological family Trochilidae. They are distributed from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego and number about 360 species, although the overwhelming majority of species are found in the tropics. They are tiny birds, with the majority of species ranging between 7.5 and 13 centimeters in length.
Penguins are a genus of flightless aquatic birds. They are nearly entirely restricted to the southern hemisphere, with the exception of one species, the Galápagos penguin, which is found north of the Equator. Penguins are well suited for life in the water, with their counter shaded black and white plumage and swimming flippers.
The herons are a family of long-legged, long-necked freshwater and coastal birds with 64 recognized species, many of which are referred to as egrets or bitterns rather than herons.
The Gruidae family is made up of long-legged and long-necked birds with a short beak. This group of birds includes cranes. There are three groups: Antigone, Balearica, and Grus. All the fifteen crane species belong to these three genera. Unlike other species of heron, cranes fly with their necks extended instead than cocked back.
Elephant birds, ratites that formerly existed on the island of Madagascar, belong to the extinct family Aepyornithidae, made up of big to gigantic flightless birds. It is speculated that its extinction occurred about 1000-1200 AD due to human activities.
Guineafowls are the sole bird of the family Numididae, which is an order of Galliformes. They are among the earliest gallinaceous birds, according to scientists. Before the Odontophoridae, they diverged from the Cracidae and the rest of their lineage.
Many ecosystems rely on birds to thrive. Pests are under control, plants pollinate, and the environment remains healthy due to their roles in everything from pest management to pollination. Birds also provide numerous benefits to people, acting as food and helping crops grow in farming areas.
