Birds, also known as Aves, are vertebrates which are characterized by having feathers, beaked jaws and by laying hard-shelled eggs. They can be found in every single habitat and environment around the world, ranging from aquatic to grasslands and come in sizes ranging from 2 inches to 9 feet tall.
In 2014, it was estimated that there are almost 900 recorded bird species in Australia and on its offshore islands. Of those, almost 50% percent of these birds are endemic to Australia, meaning that there are only found on that continent, one-tenth of which are expected to go extinct before the end of the century.
These birds come from many different groups, from small weebills to colorful parrots, to large flightless emus, to beautiful swans and many other species.
