In this context, a "sort" of bird would mean a species, or at least a family of birds, such as seagulls. A "class" would mean a set of birds, not necessarily taxonomically related, that share some characteristic or behaviour, in this case, the way they fly. But it could be colour, size, mating habits or anything else.
