Genesis 2:1-3 (KJV)

2 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.

2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multi...

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 perp...
