Expert Answer:

For flying the bird pushes the air down with its features in a direction that has both vertical and horizontal component. Now since the bird exerts force on the air the air molecules also exert an equal and opposite force on the bird whose vertical component is used by the bird for lifting up and horizontal component is used for moving forward.
