How do birds get off the ground?

I Am Wondering How Birds Get Off The Ground. Like, some birds run, while others hop. What are some other ways?

    This depends on where the bird starts and how big it is.  A bird that is perched in a tree or on a lamp post may just be able to dive off and fly, while those that are on the ground or in the water may need to get a running start.  Birds will always take off into the wind so they can get some advantage from the lift that helps to provide.  Little birds can simple hop, while larger birds will need to run to get enough momentum and lift to get off the ground.

    I have cited another source that explains it well, and there is also this diagram:
