Up to date as of January 31, 2010

From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

A Bird was a type of animal, found on Earth and many other planets. Some intelligent species seem to be descended from birds, like the Jacondan, the Valnaxi and the Dethak. The unnamed species of Mr and Mrs Pakoo was also birdlike. The planet Pheros was inhabited by intelligent robotic birds made of living metal and the Devil-Birds of Corbo were also robotic.

Examples of non-sentient birds include Ostriches, Ravens, dodos, Parrots, Sparrows and the Didus.

Memory Beta, the wiki for licensed Star Trek content.

Avians or birds were a classification of animal, generally characterized as warm-blooded vertebrates which reproduce by laying eggs. Many avians had adapted body structures which gave them the ability to fly, including feathers and wings. A female bird is sometimes referred to as a hen.

{100}{}{You see a small nervous-looking man.}
{101}{}{You see Vice-President Bird.}
{102}{}{You see a small nervous-looking man, wearing a food-stained suit.}
{103}{}{Here are some of our gallant troopers. What are you doing in the Vice-President's office?}
{104}{}{Hello, trooper. What are you doing in the Vice-President's office?}
{105}{}{You look familiar. Have I spoken with you before? Well, no matter. Just what are you doing in the Vice-President's office?}
{106}{}{The what?}
{107}{}{Uh, I'm just on a routine patrol, uh, Sir.}
{108}{}{I'm looking for intruders.}
{109}{}{I'm just here to double-check on our secret plans.}
{110}{}{I'm here to kill you.}
{111}{}{Carry on then, trooper. Carry on. You lads are doing a great service. We are ready for any unforeseen event that may or may not occur.}
{112}{}{Huh?}
{113}{}{Uh, yes. Well, I better complete my patrol. Goodbye.}
{114}{}{Hmm, tell me, how do you spell potato? With an 'E,' or without?}
{115}{}{Hmm, tell me, how do you spell subtle? With a 'B,' or without?}
{116}{}{Hmm, tell me, how do you spell California? With a 'K,' or without?}
{117}{}{Hmm, tell me, how do you spell tomato? With an 'E,' or without?}
{118}{}{Hmm, tell me, how do you spell psycho? With a 'P,' or without?}
{119}{}{Uh, with.}
{120}{}{Without, of course.}
{121}{}{Of course you do, of course. Any loyal citizen of these great United States would do the same.}
{122}{}{Why is that?}
{123}{}{I've got work to do. Goodbye.}
{124}{}{Carry on, trooper. The future will be better tomorrow.}
{125}{}{What do you mean by that?}
{126}{}{Not for you it won't. I'm exterminating all pompous slugs in the Enclave and you're next.}
{127}{}{Uh, yeah. Whatever. Goodbye.}
{128}{}{We have to work together because if we don't succeed, we run the risk of failure.}
{129}{}{Maybe your failure wouldn't be such a bad thing.}
{130}{}{Well, I better be going now.}
{131}{}{You won't get away with it.}
{132}{}{We'll just see about that.}
{133}{}{Why not? }
{134}{}{One word sums up probably the responsibility of any Vice President, and that one word is 'to be prepared.'}
{135}{}{Just what are you prepared for?}
{136}{}{Isn't that three words? 'Preparedness' is one word. Isn't that what you meant?}
{137}{}{Perhaps that's best. Keep it brief. After all, verbosity leads to unclear, inarticulate things.}
{138}{}{Imagine that.}
{139}{}{I need to leave now. Goodbye.}
{140}{}{I mean that we don't want to go back to tomorrow, we want to go forward.}
{141}{}{Isn't that the only way to go?}
{142}{}{Well you can't be too careful, after all, people that are really very weird can get into sensitive positions and have a tremendous impact on history.}
{143}{}{Yes, I can see that.}
{144}{}{What impact are you planning to have on history?}
{145}{}{Yes, I like that direction. I have made good judgements in the past. I have made good judgements in the future. So, by all means, let's go in that direction.}
{146}{}{Uh, yes.}
{147}{}{I believe we are on an irreversible trend toward more freedom and democracy - but that could change.}
{148}{}{The polluted environment of the Wastes could use a little freedom for a change.}
{149}{}{I can't take it any more. You've just got to be killed.}
{150}{}{Don't be silly. It isn't pollution that's harming the environment. It's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it.}
{151}{}{I really have to be going.}
{152}{}{You wouldn't be so flippant about it if you were on the mainland.}
{153}{}{Well, that's just the thing. The Enclave is a man-made island surrounded by water.}
{154}{}{You think you're immune to what happens here. You're stuck on the same planet with the rest of us.}
{155}{}{Did you forget to add something to that statement? Like a point.}
{156}{}{I'm Vice-President Daniel Bird. Damn glad to meet you.}
{157}{}{You're just another part of the whole problem here.}
{158}{}{You're a nutcase.}
{159}{}{I am not part of the problem. I am a Republican.}
{160}{}{Like I said, part of the problem.}
{161}{}{Ah, I see. Well, as you may know, I've long thought that it's time for the human race to enter the solar system.}
{162}{}{Aren't we all ready in the. Uh, to go *where*?}
{163}{}{How would we do that?}
{164}{}{I think that maybe Mars would be nice because Mars is essentially in the same orbit... Mars is somewhat the same distance from the Sun, which is very important. We have seen pictures where there are canals, we believe, and water. If there is water, that means there is oxygen. If oxygen, that means we can breathe.}
{165}{}{I didn't expect such a, uh, *complete* answer.}
{166}{}{You've lost your mind.}
{167}{}{What a waste it is to lose one's mind. Or not to have a mind is being very wasteful. How true that is.}
{168}{}{I'd say it's *usually* a waste. But, in your case I'm willing to make an exception.}
{169}{}{What the hell did you just say?}
{170}{}{That's it. I've wasted enough time. Goodbye.}
{171}{}{For NASA, space is still a high priority.}
{172}{}{I see, and where would we be going then?}
{173}{}{That's not true, Republicans understand the importance of bondage between a mother and child. That's the key to the solution of all our problems-we need a return to family values.}
{174}{}{What you and the Enclave are up to has nothing to do with family values.}
{175}{}{I stand by all the misstatements that I've made.}
{176}{}{Don't you understand, you'll create another holocaust if you continue.}
{177}{}{You're quite mad. You do realize that don't you?}
{178}{}{The Holocaust was an obscene period in our nation's history. I mean in this century's history. But we all lived in this century. I didn't live in this century.}
{179}{}{You're a flipping loony.}
{180}{}{Someone's got to put you out of my misery. Say your prayers, Bird.}
{181}{}{I've got to get out of here.}
{182}{}{P-O-T-A-T-O-E}
{183}{}{P-O-T-A-T-O}
{184}{}{T-O-M-A-T-O-E}
{185}{}{T-O-M-A-T-O}
{186}{}{Where did my two gallons of strawberry ice-cream go?}
{187}{}{The Caine is my ship. Mine, do you here me?}
{188}{}{You're all against me, aren't you? Aren't you?}
{189}{}{Fast as fast can be, they won't catch me.}
{190}{}{Pretty, pretty.}
{191}{}{Shiny.}
{192}{}{No, mommy, I didn't do it. Don't hit me again!}
{193}{}{Mother! Where are you mother?}
{194}{}{I don't want to be the patient this time.}
{195}{}{No, not the needles, anything but the needles.}

This article (Dino-Bird) is based off of canon information, but its subject is merely conjecture, as there is no official subject name. Please see the talk page for more info
This article does not have enough inline citations. You can help Halopedia by adding citations.

Dino-Birds (tentative name) are a species of flying creature that inhabit numerous former Forerunner worlds. They appear in Halo 2 and Halo 3.

Dino-Birds in Epitaph.

The Dino-Birds were first seen on Installation 05 on the levels Delta Halo and Regret. They appeared again in Halo 3 on the multiplayer maps Guardian and Epitaph.

Inhabitant of Guardian.

Despite being of presumably alien nature, these creatures bear a surprising similarity to the ancient earth "pterosaur" species. A double set of wings and a long, rigid tail give them a striking resemblance to Earth's dragonflies as well. It is unknown how they came to populate so many worlds but the fact that their habitats are in areas once inhabited, or at least visited by the Forerunners suggests that they were transplanted either purposely or accidentally by the Forerunners, or, given their pterosaurs nature, an even older civilization.

Installation 05 inhabitants.

Trivia

  • In Halo 2 and Halo 3, players can shoot these creatures or stick them with Spike Grenades or Plasma Grenades on several Campaign and Multiplayer levels. If you shoot them they will burst and fall to bloody tatters in mid-air, their gory ribbons tend to just "poof" in the air with few visible body parts falling.
  • Upon death, the bird's body disappears for a fraction of a second, then reappears larger than before.
  • The birds seen in High Charity in the Halo 2 level Gravemind are sometimes mistaken for Dino-Birds, but upon closer examination, one can see that they are a different species.

"Bird" redirects here. For the character, see: Captain Bird.
Releasing the Silver Gull ("Par Avion")
The birds behind Room 23 ("Room 23")

A number of birds have appeared on Lost. There are various in-depth articles citing specific encounters, including:

Other birds

  • After Brian wouldn't pay attention to Walt's report on birds, a bird ran into the window. Brian seems to think Walt had something to do with it. Walt had been reading a page about the "Bronze Cuckoo". ("Special")
  • When Claire was visiting Carole Littleton, her mother, migratory birds are briefly visible on the television. ("Par Avion")
  • Birds can be heard several times throughout the series, usually preceding the arrival of The Monster.
  • Juliet showed Ben a pile of various dead birds outside of the Hydra building that contains Room 23, beneath a boarded up window. Walt was inside Room 23 at that time. The dead birds include various parrots, various doves/pigeons, possible corvids (crow-like), and debatable larids (gulls). The gulls are not the same species as caught by Claire in "Par Avion". ("Room 23")
  • In the Lost (non-canon) novelization Endangered Species, Faith Harrington records seeing an extinct Paradise Parrot on the Island. It is later revealed in the book that there is a group of the birds.

Birds identifiable by calls

In the background of almost every Lost episode, various bird calls can be heard, providing a challenge of aural identification not for the faint of heart. However, these calls may be dismissed as "background-jungle noise;" the sound engineers and Foley artists of the Lost production crew almost certainly do not receive species-specific guidance from the writers. The list below stems purely from viewer (well, listener) curiosity and investigation:

  • wikipedia:Peafowl (Peacocks/Peahens), specifically Common Peafowl (Pavo cristatus), are an introduced bird prevalent in Hawaii, where Lost is filmed.
  • wikipedia:Loons
  • Doves - likely Spotted Doves or Zebra Doves, as these are the predominant dove species in areas of Hawaii where Lost is filmed.
