Can birds fly to the heavens?

No. They don't fly even as high as big ol' jet airliners fly.

Geese have been found at very high altitudes, but birds can't fly too high in the atmosphere because there are much fewer oxygen molecules above, say, 20,000 feet. They couldn't breathe that high and wouldn't be able to generate much lift in such a thin atmosphere. Even helicopters can barely reach the higher parts of Everest since there's not enough atmospheric gas for the blades to displace.

"The heavens" mean up in the air, so yes.

You would have to define what you mean by 'the heavens'. Some people use it as a vague term for the sky. Others mean a mythical place. Obviously, birds do not fly to the latter as they do not exist. Birds do fly in the sky but usually not higher than 150 m. However, when migrating birds are known to fly as high as 6000 m. The record appears to have been set by a Ruppell's Griffon at around 11 500 m.
