6 Most Strange-looking birds in the world.

Birds are warm-blooded vertebrates belonging to class Aves. They have characteristic features such as Feathers, toothless beaked jaws, the laying of hard-shelled eggs, a rapid metabolic rate, a four-chambered heart, and a lightweight skeleton. 

This feature distinguishes them and makes them unique. A more detailed definition would state that they are warm-blooded vertebrates with forelimbs that are modified into wings, a similar feature is found in bats. 

Birds lay hard-shelled eggs, they have keen vision, which is their primary sense for obtaining information about their surroundings.

Their sense of smell isn’t very good, and their hearing range is limited. The majority of birds are diurnal. Fossil remains have been used to identify over 1,000 extinct species.
