The value of birds are discussed from the cosmocentric positions. The birds occupied the important place in religious-philosophical systems. The man of the archaic society knew the bird as a principle of the maximum cosmic level. In the modern man it serves consumer admiring of the tired and satiated soul. [Russian].
Key words: bird conservation, aesthetics, philosophy, cosmocentric system.
