Birds (class: Aves) are feathered, beaked, winged, bipedal, warm-blooded, egg-laying, vertebrate animals. With around 10,000 living species, they are the most speciose class of tetrapod vertebrates.

Birds in the wizarding world

Birds exist both in the wizarding world and the Muggle world, however the owl kind is the most common in the wizarding world, both as pets and means of communication.[1] The use of Bird entrails is a form of Divination,[2] and there also exist many magical varieties of birds, such as phoenixes.[3] There exist spells both to transform objects into birds,[4] as well as conjuring them out of thin air.[5] Bird-watching is a hobby that both Muggles and wizardkind partake in.[6]

This subject is far too vague or ubiquitous to have a list of appearances, for it most likely appears in every release/title of the Wizarding World franchise.
