Birds

Birds are characterised by feathers and a beak with no teeth, and lay hard-shelled eggs. They are said to be the last surviving lineage of dinosaurs, having evolved from feathered dinosaur ancestors. Birds are social, communicating with visual signals, calls and bird songs, and some species such as parrots are considered to be among the most intelligent animals.
