List RulesSongs with "bird" in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about birds as a subject.

Although eagles are the most common bird that is referenced in music, there are plenty of other great bird songs that are worth listening to. After all, what's a better fantasy to live out in a song than spreading your wings and taking to the sky? This is a ranked list of all songs about birds, including songs about eagles, doves, swans, seagulls and more. Some of the songs included below may have the words "bird" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about birds as a subject or theme. Songs like The Beatles' "Blackbird" instantly come to mind when thinking of bird songs, but what about lesser known tracks like "Vultures" by John Mayer?

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the birds songs that you enjoy the most, and downvote ones if you think they're not worthy of being high on the list. If one of your top songs is missing, add it to the list so others can vote for it too. Many genres of music are featured below, including rock, pop, folk, metal, and more. This list is made up of different items, including “Blackbird” and “Black Swan Song.”
