Birds, the largest number of tetrapod vertebrates, are warm-blooded egg layers and are unique in their covering of feathers. While most birds can fly, some are flightless such as the ostrich and penguin, but all have forelimbs that have evolved into wings. Their feathers developed from scales and provide a flight surface, while scales on their legs can still be seen today. While most birds are active during the day, some, such as the owl, are active at night. Birds are very popular animals as can be seen in the hobbies of birding and birdwatching.
