RE: [asa] (save the birds) Noah's Ark- the debate over floods... and biblical interpretation

YEC's (young earthers) say that there were certain 'kinds' of animals on the ark and not all species. Example: a wolf rather than all breeds of dogs. If all birds were wiped-out, how many birds would they need to get us were we are today? Was there a "base bird" they saved? The text may give a clue- the raven and dove were sent out. If ravens and doves were sent out, does that mean other similar species-level birds had to be saved? Or are ravens and doves supposed to be some sort of 'base kind' from which many other birds could be derived to get us the diversity we see today?
