The first creatures God made after He formed this earth with its atmosphere, lands, seas, and plantlife, was fish and fowl – from the greatest whale to the smallest hummingbird. Any life of any kind that lives in the water is made at this point. The language allows that this may be the time God made flying insects as well; however it is possible they were made on Day 6. All these creatures are made with the ability to perpetuate their species by reproduction. The creatures made on Day 5 are the first creatures blessed by God.

What strange yet soothing sounds.
Genesis 1: 20-23 20
20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
