Blue birds have the ability to split into three different birds with a single shot that means three times more damage than a regular bird. Yellow birds can get a speed boost when tapped; you can use these birds to destroy harder obstacles like rock. Black birds are probably the most powerful birds of the game, they explode after a while and you can use them to do some serious damage. White birds drop explosive eggs but you need expertise and lot of practice to drop those eggs at the right spot at the right time.
Boomerang birds are probably the most difficult birds to handle as they go like regular birds but when you tap on the screen, they return like a boomerang. They are effective weapons against pigs hidden behind something hard. Big brother birds are regular birds but with much bigger size and they can do a lot of damage.
