Birds (class Aves) are a group of endothermic vertebrates, characterized by feathers, a beak with no teeth, the laying of hard-shelled eggs, a high metabolic rate, a four-chambered heart, and a lightweight but strong skeleton. Birds play prominent and diverse roles in folklore, religion, and art. Books about birds include fiction (particularly children's fiction) and non-fiction (such as guides for birdwatchers).
“ O Heavenly Children, do not forget that God is here, there and everywhere. The birds are his eyes and the air is his ears. And as you sleep, your heart and soul rest naked before him. He can drink from the rivers of your thoughts, and even feel the wetness of your tears. ”
“ The reason birds can fly and we can't is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings. ”

[close] Welcome to Birds! Eclectus Parrots (Eclectus roratus) For all bird lovers—wrap yourself in the realm of birds and share your experiences while birding! We will read books about and relating to birds, giving us a broader and newer understanding of them at the same time as we discuss species and take in birding tips. At first, birding may seem like a wasted pastime, but if looked at in the right way, reveals an outstanding world that you never thought existed. I hope to explore this world with you and learn from you in a community where we are all into ornithology, so don't hesitate, meander into the realm of feathered creatures that surround us.
