A bird morph is a morph used predominantly for aerial utility. The Animorphs each acquired these morphs for transportation, aerial travel, reconnaissance and infiltration purposes. The Animorphs also possess bird-of-prey morphs, a series of raptor morphs which, in addition to the aforementioned uses, are also employed for battle or quicker flight purposes if needed.

- All of the Auxiliary Animorphs acquired birds to serve as their flight morphs, with four of the seventeen (James, Collette, Kelly and Timmy) acquiring pigeons while the rest acquired and morphed into Tobias's red-tailed hawk. James is the only Auxiliary Animorph identified with his own unique raptor morph, a peregrine falcon.
- Andalite arisths usually acquire the kafit bird, a twelve-winged bird from their world, as their flight morph of choice.
- When the Yeerks acquired the Escafil Device, morph-capable Yeerks typically chose either the peregrine falcon or the golden eagle as their bird morphs. One Yeerk squad leader in The Absolute chose a red-tailed hawk morph.
