Birds Have Special Features


Birds have special features that help them fly, such as light bones, strong muscles, and fast breathing. But some birds cannot fly or fly very well, like penguins, kiwis, and cassowaries. Birds are also good at making sounds, getting along with each other, and learning new things. Some birds, like parrots, crows, and ravens, can copy what humans say and use things like sticks or stones. Birds are important for nature because they help plants grow, spread seeds, eat other animals, and get eaten by other animals. They are also useful for people because they give us food, feathers, and eggs. And they are meaningful for people because they have different meanings in different cultures.
