Birds are a group of endothermic vertebrates, characterized by feathers, toothless beaked jaws, the laying of hard-shelled eggs, a high metabolic rate, a four-chambered heart, and a lightweight but strong skeleton. Birds live worldwide and range in size from the 5 cm (2 in) bee hummingbird to the 2.75 m (9 ft) ostrich. They rank as the class of tetrapods with the most living species, at approximately ten thousand, with more than half of these being perching birds.

:) (Smile) A very nice lineup, it is. I like how you colored the beak of dromornis. By the way, what species of cassowary is in the lineup between the ostrich and the emu?

Well you could have added more avians including a turkey, an Andean condor, a marabou stork, plus two extinct birds the dodo and the great auk.

Amazing as always ;)but personally I think you could have added an albatross and condor as the birds with the largest wingspan which are still around (living that is).
