green bullet Modern meaning
Birds make for great logos and they are associated with a host of positive symbolic meanings. In modern logos birds usually represent freedom, life and happiness - which is not much different from the symbolic meanings historically assigned to birds.

Birds can sometimes symbolize wisdom or knowledge. In fiction, birds sometimes speak and impart special knowledge or a secret to the listener. The bird logo used by Twitter is possibly tied to this meaning.

Apart from the many general meanings, specific species of birds also come with their own symbolism, for example cranes and the majestic albatross. Be sure to read up on those specific meanings as well.
