    Yes. It has been done before.

    If u strap a gopro camera on one you technically got a flying machine powered by bird.

    No one said it has to be heavy.

    Of course they can. Haven t you seen Chicken Run? It s a factual documentary about chickens building a functional aircraft.

    If sufficient numbers were ground up and heated so that the fats could be pressed out of them and turned into synthetic fuel the answer is probably yes.

    Probably not European sparrows, but African sparrows are a different story. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liIlW-ovx0Y

      <If you're going to quote from a film at least get the quote right> And if you're going to use the word 'quote', at least get the meaning right. I didn't make a quote--it's an allusion--but you're right, it should be swallows.

      That was Bishop Francis Godwin's idea.

    This question has nothing to do with the Peking Boulevard.

    Perhaps your question should make reference to Peking Ducks.

    Most birds can't carry much weight.
