Birds category should be sub-divided into raptors and song birds.

A close-up of an owl or eagle will easily capture a viewers attention. They are expressive and dynamic. The more common backyard birds have a more subtle beauty and require a different type of photographic capture. These birds are part of our everyday lives and can be easily taken for granted. 'Its just a sparrow' is much more likely spoken than 'its just an eagle".
Backyard songbirds deserve their own category.

Excellent point. Backyard songbirds are photo worthy too. There are a few categories that could use adjusting.

Chances of such a change being implemented are about the same as Donald Trump releasing his tax returns! Birds as a whole (as well as sea creatures) shouldn't really be under animals. Even our creator made a clear distinction between these. On the 5th day God created sea and air creatures, while animals were created on the 6th day. Considering the enormous range and vast differences between images in the "animal" category, it's quite possible to abandon all categories and simply have people vote for the better image. I don't think the difference between images of an ant and an elephant or a spider and a whale are significantly smaller than those between a cat and a dog or a flower and a leaf. In fact, the latter two probably have more in common!
