Birds are the most beautiful creatures in this world, although most people probably wouldn’t say that when asked such a question. They come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and even personalities just like every other living thing on this planet – it’s just that they’re more wonderful than other living things in every way.

Imagine the wind blowing past us as we fly towards our destination without the worry of squeezing between cars on the road… well, who wouldn’t?
