ALL ABOUT BIRDS

INTRODUCTION TO BIRDS

Birds (class Aves or clade Avialae) are feathered, winged, two-legged, warm-blooded, egg -laying vertebrates. Aves ranks as the tetrapod class with the most living Birds.

Birds are the only animals that have feathers, which are made of keratin, just like your hair and fingernails. A bird’s wings have the same bones as a human arm, but they are arranged differently. Some of the bones in a bird’s skeleton are hollow. This makes the bird light enough to fly. There are more than 9,800 known types of birds. They range in size from the bee hummingbird (2 ¼ inches long) to the 9-foot-tall ostrich.
All birds:
  • Are vertebrates (which means they have a backbone or spine)
  • Are endothermic. Also known as “warm-blooded,” endothermic animals regulate their own body temperature which allows them to live in almost every climate on earth.
  • Have feathers
  • Lay eggs with hard, waterproof shells. The parent birds incubate the eggs until they hatch, and care for their young.
