I want to know if the following two sentence are equal in meaning. If not, what is the difference?

The sparrow was the highest bird of all

The sparrow was the highest of all the birds


They mean the same thing. Though, it is unclear what either of them mean. I guess the sparrow was one of a group of birds, and happened to be flying or perched higher than all the others?
