Birds That Start With A

The letter A is home to three remarkable avian species, the Australian magpie, American kestrel, and albatross.

Known for their striking black and white plumage, the Australian magpie showcases their intelligence by mimicking human speech!

The small raptor American kestrel hunts insects, rodents, reptiles, and frogs either from high perches or while hovering in midair. They usually nest in tree cavities but can also make use of man-made nesting boxes.

Notably renowned for its wingspan and endurance during flight is the albatross; these seabirds can remain airborne for thousands of miles at a time without landing due to their ability to “sleep” as they fly.

Their diet consists mainly of squid and fish swimming near the ocean’s surface – with a potential lifespan of up to 30 years if protected from predators.

These unique birds have made them perfect research candidates for those wishing to further explore the world of ornithology.
