All mammals are birds!
Not all reptiles are birds.
Some insects are birds, although I do not believe that all are.
Some fish are birds.
I've found a single citation that suggests one or two echinoderms may be birds, but I can't find any definitive information without paying like a hundred books to buy a book. For now, let's say none are, as the vast majority are not.
