Birds are a group of warm-blooded vertebrates characterized by their feathers, toothless beaked jaws, and the ability to lay eggs. They have wings and a lightweight skeleton that enables them to fly, although not all birds are capable of flight. Birds come in a wide variety of sizes, colors, and shapes, ranging from tiny hummingbirds to large flightless ostriches. They are found all over the world, occupying a diverse range of habitats, from oceans and forests to deserts and grasslands. Many bird species are popular pets, and some are also kept for their eggs, meat, or feathers. Birds are important pollinators and play a critical role in many ecosystems by helping to control pests, dispersing seeds, and providing food for other animals.
