Evolution can't even account for the synchronization process for the shell of an egg! There is no evolutionary explanation as to how the shell forms from the calcium stored inside the bird's body. And this is how a new bird is made! Origin of species? Hardly! Origin of a fable is more like it! 
    The shell not only provides protection for the egg, but provides both a membrane through which it can breath and a source of calcium for the developing embryo. If you really want to drive an evolutionist nuts, ask one about the synchronization-process necessary to produce life from a human egg
    Birds produce fewer free radicals than mammals despite the fact that birds have faster metabolic rates for their size. Mammals and cold blooded animals have vastly different remarkably complex life support systems. Evolution has accounted for this as evolution always does ....yawn! Mammals have a part of the brain (the neocortex) that does not exist in reptiles or birds.
    Male birds sing. Females can, but usually don't. Few species of birds have females that do. One of the that does sing is the cardinal (Richmondena cardinalis). Others are the rose breasted grosbeak (Pheucticus ludovicianus) and some tropical wrens. 
    Some species perform duets so well that all one hears is one voice for most of the song. Virginia rails perform duets, but differently. One bird begins. The other finishes. In other bird species, one begins and the other joins in half way. Yet others have the male sing some notes and the female other notes, and they both switch back and forth. Such a marvelous creation! Such incredible diversity! European quails and African snipes reverse roles, with the female the singing one, and the male almost voiceless. The more we look, the more astounding, and even confounding it seems to be. 
    There are different wing flapping characteristics for different birds. Some large birds with great wing spans, flap with a short up and down movement, yet others of similar size and wing span have a much greater flap. Same with the smaller birds, except for the hummingbird. Even here, we see such diversity. So many ways to do the same thing, to fly. What is God saying?-
    The Great Blue Heron has a specialized heat exchanger system located in their upper legs, enabling them to stand in frigid water for extended periods of time. This network of arteries and veins cools the blood flowing into the lower legs to conserve heat loss to the cold waters and to conserve the bird's energy. This system also warms the blood returning to the heart. In hot weather the system shuts down, allowing the legs to become a major source of heat loss, keeping the bird cooler. 

BEES:-About 1/3 of all food we eat depends upon the honeybee.
    The female workers in a beehive actually expend effort to help the queen reproduce (queen's reproduce all the eggs for all types {drones [male bees], workers [sterile female bees] and queen}), rather than focus all their efforts on trying to survive. How can a queen so different from workers pass onto her offspring the characteristics of worker bees? Both the body structure and behavior of a worker bee is very distinct from those of the queen, as is a drone.
    Why do the workers who retain their ability to reproduce, work for the hive, rather than devote their efforts to whatever chance they may have to reproduce their own offspring? Why do bees do what they do? And same for all other animals. Is there really any way they all evolved the preferences individual animal kinds display? And the question especially applies when one considers the cooperative behavior between beetles and bees and ants and bees and badgers and birds!

The evolutionary theories developed thus far to explain altruism assume that altruistic behavior decreases reproduction by its very definition. How can a feature that reduces the reproduction of its bearers evolve when evolution by its basic tenets is the selection and promotion of traits that enable individuals to bring forth more descendants. No explanation of the evolution of altruism makes sense unless it shows that altruistic activity will actually improve the reproductive chances of its carriers. In other words, any theory which attempts to explain the evolution of altruism must identify some mechanism that compensates the altruist for its supposed loss of reproductive "fitness" ...The Handicap Principle, p.161. 
    The paradox is; animals have signals which handicap them in such a way that guarantees the signal is reliable. 
    Some bees hitch onto flower petals with their sharp mandibles, clasp with their legs, and turn themselves into living tuning forks, quivering certain muscles 200 to 500 times a second. The rhythmical oscillations produce a middle C range auditory experience.
    Stephen Buchmann of Beeworks, formerly of Carl Hayden Bee Research Centre in Tucson, Arizona, has measured the g's from the oscillating bee to be as high as 30 g's, far more than a test pilot can endure at 6 to 9 g's. But, the world's best known bee, the honeybee can't 'buzz'. Like I say, "God darn well does things the way He wants, and it confounds us again and again!"
