If I could be any animal in the world, I would like to be a bird. There is no particular bird that I would most enjoy being. I could be the smallest blue jay, or the most dangerous hawk, neither is more intriguing to me. There are two reasons why I would like to be a bird, and only one reason I would not. I believe the bird is a beautiful creature, and I also believe that the bird is the luckiest creature to ever live. But, then there are the few downsides to being a bird.
The downsides are few, but significant. Let’s take the penguin for example. What terrible thing could a bird have done to be a wingless, legless bird stuck in the middle of the South Pole!
The poor things must be miserable! I know that if I were a bird, I would prefer to have wings and legs! Another downside would be captivation. Now, I am human and all, but if I were looking at life from a bird’s point of view, I would have to say captivation isn’t exactly what I would be striving for. Part of the fun about being a bird would have to be the freedom that comes along with it.
The freedom of a bird is one of the major reasons I choose this creature. A bird has the freedom to live wherever he/she pleases. A nest can be built almost anywhere! Birds also have the incredible ability to see the world from a point of view completely different from our own. They can fly! They can see things, smell things, and touch things that are so far beyond our reach in so many ways. This is why I believe that the bird is the luckiest creature to ever live. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to not have any material belongings? To be able to move to Florida on
a whim? Think about it, I could fly there without even buying a ticket, and have the opportunity to live wherever my little heart desired!
The bird is also a beautiful animal in many ways. It can sing beautiful music like no other animal can.

- Dinosaurs and Birds Are birds really dinosaurs or are they simply related. That is a question that has gained new life in recent years due to the overwhelming facts the are pouring in from newly found fossils and studies from fossils that have been found in the past.

- I had done it again, except this time I laughed. It had happened a few times before, but there was just a different feeling surrounding it. Like I was creating some sort of plot against it now. Pulling out the big guns, you might say. Last year I spotted it and I don’t know why it strikes fear into me, but it just does: the bird’s nest. Nestled in a corner under my deck, there it sat. Frayed pieces of straw poking out like arrows announcing I’m here, sucka, and there’s nothing you can do about it.... [tags: Personal Experience ]

- Plato's The Republic and Aristophanes The Birds It is evident, by Plato's The Republic and Aristophanes The Bird's, that one's vision of an ideal state is not the same mystical utopia. Plato's Republic is an well-ordered society that emphasizes the development of the community, which leads to its people believing in this philosophy. Cloudcuckooland, the idea of two lazy Athenians, is an unorganized society that lacks the substance to make it a workable society. I would much rather live in the organized Republic to the unorganized Cloudcuckooland.... [tags: Plato Republic Aristophanes Birds Essays]

- Makemedo's Journey to Power in Aristophanes' Birds Humans have always journeyed in search of what they want and need. Our earliest ancestors were nomads, wandering the countryside in search of food and shelter. It is no surprise, then, that much of ancient and modern literature deals with the theme of the journey and getting what one wants. This is especially true in the writing of Aristophanes' Birds, from Aristophanes I: Clouds, Wasps, Birds, translated by Peter Meineck, published by the Hackett Publishing Company in Indianapolis, IN, in 1998....

- The Repetitive, Meditative Style of Lawrence's Birds, Beasts, and Flowers D. H. Lawrence is not a formalist. He derives his free verse style from prolonged experience with imaginative essays in which he objectively and vividly contemplates things, people, and places in their singleness rather than in their relationship to each other. Lawrence's purpose, according to Gilbert, is "knowledge through meditation": he essays "to know something . . . intuitively . . . obliquely . . . fragmentarily; not through orderly ratiocination, but through emotional perception." As his style developed, Lawrence's essays became "increasingly idiosyncratic, increasingly elliptical, spontaneous and jazzy, as t... [tags: Birds Beasts Flowers]

- Satire defined is 'A composition in verse or prose holding up a vice or folly to ridicule or lampooning individuals… The use of ridicule, irony, sarcasm, etc, in speech or writing for the ostensible purpose of exposing and discourage vice or folly'; (Johnston, 5).

With all the animals in this world, why would I prefer a bird? I suppose it is because they mesmerize me, they intrigue me, and most of all, they impress me. A bird is a carefree creature.

So whether it be the smallest blue jay, or the most dangerous hawk, I would most like to be a bird.
