Interesting theory......I would say that birds have wings mainly

as an aid to almost evrything they do. Carnivorous birds need their

wings to swoop down on smaller birds. All birds( that have wings

and are capable of flying) use their wings to evade predators and

humans. They use them to hunt, to migrate, to collect materials for

their nests....many things would not be available to brids if they

did not have wings, and most of those things neccesary, hence the

answer. They just need them.
