really? never know red blood cells in bird have DNA. but human red blood cells doesn't contain dna right? since they don't have a nucleus and chromosomes?

Yes human blood cells don't have DNA. There is a thread in the cell bio forum with pictures about the shape of red blood cells. In every other animal except mamals, RBC have DNA and a nucleus

WBC has got DNA and RBCs are called enucleated cells (i.e., no DNA). In the course of evolution they lost nucleus in order to give maximum space for hemoglobin for efficient respiration.
