Comparing airplanes to birds is moot in this respect. You have birds achieving thrust by reshaping the wing by utilizing muscular structures in the body and planes achieving thrust without manipulating the wing.
If we assume that low wing is a better design, then birds would still be high wing because muscles achieve work by pulling, so flying would be impossible!

High wing is best because you can get through gates at airstrips

High wing planes are better if you want to look down
Low wing planes are better if you want to look up.
High wing planes are better if you need to land in scrub. - or land
on skis or floats.

Low wing planes are easier to fill wing tanks.
