I am looking for the list of the words which describes various peculiarity of animals or birds.

E.g. A wise Owl. We say this because we always associate Owl in stories, cartoon, movies etc. as wise.

An other example is of Crow. We always consider Crow to be clever.

Can you please provide a list of words describing particular peculiarity of animals and birds?

    Here is a List of Animal Similes and here is another but I think the question is off-topic as this was basic research that is easy to find. – Weather Vane Apr 6 '19 at 13:16
  • There are a great many ways to refer to groups of animals collectively, such as a pride of lions or an exultation of larks. Is that what you mean?? There are also formal adjectives for many, used as metaphor: dailywritingtips.com/… – Lambie Apr 6 '19 at 13:22

    Welcome to ELL. Questions asking for lists of things aren't a good fit for our format, because they can't be completely answered with one reasonable length answer unless we're just pointing to other compiled lists on the web. This seems like a resource request, and we usually handle those on [meta] since they're out of scope on the main site, so I'm going to go ahead an transfer it there. – ColleenV Apr 6 '19 at 15:35
