Brown and Yellow Mynah Birds in Hawaii (Photo by Sheryl Todd)Birds are vertebrate egg-laying members of the class Aves. All modern birds are feathered, bipedal, and winged, and all lay hard-shelled eggs to reproduce. The 10,000 current species of birds inhabit environments from one pole to the other. Modern birds range in size from the ostrich at 9 feet to the bee hummingbird at 2 inches. While all have wings, some (such as penguins) cannot fly, using their wings for other purposes. "The fossil record indicates that birds evolved from theropod dinosaurs during the Jurassic Period and, consequently, they are considered a subgroup of dinosaurs by many paleontologists."
