Birds are animals with wings and feathers. Most birds are adapted for flight. However, some birds. like penguins and ostriches do not have an ability to fly even if they have their wings. These feathered creatures can be found in all habitats everywhere! Their size varies from small like a humming bird to large like an ostrich.
A birds anatomy is highly specialized for flight. The humerus, a major bone, is hallow rather than solid to make them light. The muscles are also powerful enough to lift them off the ground. Tails are used for stirring. Did you know that bird wings were the inspiration for airplane wings?
