Birds are popular symbols as they represent many human emotions and are one of the most popular animals in mythology. Each species of bird is thought to represent a distinct emotion such as the dove and nightingale’s representation of love, and the owl’s representation of wisdom. They have gained attention by both religion and science in their ability to fly, challenging the concept of gravity, and often representing a connection between earth and the heavens. With very distinct characteristics and form, a bird can be easily represented and recognized by all, making it an easy symbol to use in many forms of design.
