How do birds fly
Most birds fly there are different ways of flying like
hovering, soaring, flapping and gliding. Most birds are literally built to fly. Except for some flightless birds like the kiwi and the penguin.
birds have feathers to help them fly.the tail helps them steer.It matters on the shape of the wing on how fast or slow a bird can fly. Birds have fewer bones but more muscles.
How it works
Birds move as quickly as possible then flap there wings in order to create their own lift. once airborne they can glide for quite a large period of time. Birds can’t weigh much or the wings have to be quite large.
When\where it is used
Albatross fly in the way of the wind. They can fly for long distances at a time conserving the energy of the wind. when the are going towards the wind they lose a lot of energy so they have to turn back.

Pigeons are special because they can fly really fast. They can find their way to home from really far away. Pigeons have narrow pointed wings witch cause them them to go as fast as they do.
Birds are on of the only animals that can fly. airplanes have it easy compared to birds.
