There are currently eight different styles of playable birds, not including the Mighty Creatures, shown in the order they are first presented to the player. Each bird has a different ability, such as being able to boomerang back on itself, splitting to three, or exploding, these abilities are activated by tapping the screen while the bird is flying. Below is the list of birds.
- Red Bird - does nothing but does make a yell when tapped and does great at popping pigs.
- Blue Bird - splits into 3 birds that do great on glass when tapped.
- Yellow Bird - picks up speed and distance and does great on wood when tapped.
- Black Bird - explodes when tapped or upon inpact and does great on stone.
- White Bird - drops an egg bomb that explodes on impact when tapped and does great on wood and glass.
- Boomerang (Green) Bird - comes back like a boomerang when tapped and does great on wood and glass.
- Big Brother Bird - does nothing but is big and powerful and does great on anything.
- Orange Bird - inflates to huge size like a balloon when tapped or upon impact and deflates a little later.
- Mighty Eagle - You first launch sardines anywhere you want, then the Mighty Eagle will come down (Like \ but wider) and destroy everything in it's path, then dart up (like / but wider) and fly away. Any pigs he missed will jump up and down and pop. It costs 99 cents to unlimitely play him. You earn feathers for how much you destroyed of the pigs fortresses. Your feather (100%) will be shown on the level button.
