The internal organs of a bird

In The Angry Birds Movie, the characters of the Angry Birds franchise are depicted with limbs for the first time. This article explains the variety of limbs that exist in the film and how these new aesthetics affects the original appearances of the birds.


Birds are winged creatures with legs that end in talons arranged in the anisodactyl form (three toes forward and one back). As hatchlings, birds are born with small wings and legs, and a fat, round body. However, as they grow, birds can develop unique body shapes, wings and legs.


In The Angry Birds Movie, the birds have wings, which function exactly like human arms, instead of actual bird wings, as they contain dedicated hand-like skeletal structures. Most birds have a moderate wingspan, although there are some Birds who have short and small wings, such as Hal, and a few others with long ones, such as Stella and Gale. However, the colossal Mighty Eagle has proper wings which help him fly. A statue depicts this, carrying hundreds of eggs while several birds look up in awe (and Red strangely crying) at his heroism.

Leg length

Birds typically stand on legs that are not too long, although some variations of the length exist, as with wingspan. Stella and Gale have longer legs to appear tall, exhibiting a sense of athleticism.

Leg type

Birds are covered in feathers, which may also cover their legs as well, down to the talons. However, there are also birds who do not have fully feathered legs. In such cases, the unfeathered portion of the legs are covered with scales, like the talons. The color of the scales and talons usually match the color of the beak, although there are exceptions, such as Bubbles. Birds can have half-feathered legs, such as Chuck, or they may have fully, scaly legs that are thin and twig-like, comprising nothing more of scales, bone and a thin layer of muscles, like that of Stella.

Eye size

Hatchlings have abnormally huge eyes, which cover the middle-top of their face, but these progress into smaller eyes during adolescence, or the eyes stay normal while their bodies grow bigger. An example is clearly detailed by looking at the hatchling Petunia, who clearly see has large eyes. However, examining adolescent birds such as Chuck and Bomb shows their eyes being smaller than their body.

Silver is a notable exception; her green eyes remain fairly large even while grown.

  • For some reason, hatchlings only have two toes on their feet, but grown birds (Except for Matilda and Judge Peckinpah who also have two toes) have three toes on their feet.
  • The birds seem to use their talons as hands when they can't use their wings.
