Birds are some of the most fascinating creatures on earth. They come in all shapes and sizes and vary widely in behavior, habitat, diet, and other characteristics. From the mighty condor with its 10-foot wingspan to the tiny hummingbird that weighs less than a penny – birds captivate people around the world. While there are approximately 10,000 species of birds worldwide, each one has something special to offer us.
Birds have always been an important part of our environment. Many cultures consider them to be spiritual messengers or symbols of luck and prosperity. For centuries they have been used for food and sport hunting as well as providing vital resources such as feathers for clothing and shelter materials.
