“I’m delighted to share the signs and miracles that the Most High God has worked in my life.
His signs are superb!
His miracles so powerful!
His kingdom is everlasting.
His rule is for all time.” Daniel 4:2-3 Common English Bible (CEB)
Avian and Attributes – Superb
SUPERB‘, a. [L. superbus, proud, from super.]
1. Grand; magnificent; as a superb edifice; a superb colonnade.
2. Rich; elegant; as superb furniture or decorations.
4. Rich; splendid; as a superb entertainment.

I was surprised that the regular versions of the Bible did not use the word “Superb.” When I think of Our Lord Jesus Christ and God, the word “Superb” comes to mind. The CEB had 3 verses that used “superb,” but Daniel 4 above is the best one.
There are seven “Superb” birds in the latest list of birds, all of them very pretty birds, and have a super look about them. Don’t you agree?
Superb Fairywren (Malurus cyaneus)
Superb Fruit Dove (Ptilinopus superbus)
Superb Lyrebird (Menura novaehollandiae)
Superb Parrot (Polytelis swainsonii)
Superb Pitta (Pitta superba)
Superb Starling (Lamprotornis superbus)
Superb Sunbird (Cinnyris superbus)
