Birds, belonging to the class Aves, are a group of warm-blooded vertebrates characterized by feathers, beaks, and a high metabolic rate. They are found worldwide, ranging from the Arctic to the Antarctic, and inhabit diverse environments, from forests and deserts to oceans and urban areas. Birds lay hard-shelled eggs and many species exhibit complex behaviors such as migration, social communication, and intricate mating rituals. With over 10,000 known species, birds vary significantly in size, color, and form, from the tiny hummingbird to the large ostrich. They play crucial ecological roles, including pollination, seed dispersal, and pest control, and have significant cultural and economic importance to humans.
