Birds are an incredible class of animals that have evolved from the dinosaurs. They have been an inspiration to every culture across the history around the world. Since they have beaks, unique feathers and have wings that make them soar across the sky many different meanings have been attached to their images. Symbology of birds has taken a great part in the history of art. Old myths have revolved around personification of birds and philosophy has used their behavior to describe different characteristics of various concepts. Spreading across 2057 classes and 9702 species, birds display a rich variety across geographies around the world. In the tropics we find the richly colored, vocal mimicking birds while in the arctics reside the swimmer penguins.
