do birds have laws they need to follow when flying?

No. But I'm all for passing legislation that would make them follow FAA regulations.

Are hummingbirds legal tender? Why don't do we go toe to toe on bird law and see who comes out the victor?

Yeah, if they don't follow the laws, the bird police will track them down and give them a ticket.

Birds all over the world are completing their migratory journeys. Sometimes their journeys are as long as 22,000 miles!
How Do They Do That?!
One bird in particular, the Arctic Tern, is able to migrate back to where it was born even if it has been separated from its parents.
Many parents leave the nest before young birds are able to fly. Yet, even without parental guidance, the young birds are able to travel home.
When they are alone, they travel in darkness and may even create landmarks when flying over water.
Another theory is that the birds are somehow able to access the earth's magnetic north/south pole lines. The young birds use the sun and these lines to safely guide themselves. However, scientists have not been able to prove that the birds use landmarks, magnetic lines, or some other guidance system.
Reaching Their Destination
When the bird's reach their destination they are greeted by many other species of birds and are also able to breed. With large numbers of birds, these migration destinations are great places for predators to attack. The birds must be careful to avoid becoming prey.
If the Arctic Tern survives, it can expect to live a long life (anywhere between 20 and 60 years!)

Aside from the obvious laws of physics, no.

Birds have instincts, they are born to fly and navigate their way.

No, they don't. Not legal laws, anyway. The laws of physics, yes.

Can birds fly without air resistance?
