Tim,

We can see the same pattern with the Trees from the OT in Ezekiel where the animals are no longer mentioned except the Birds of the Air (Eze 17) which I believe Matt 13:32 picks up on. I believe the Birds of the Air/Heaven denotes that the rest is found in the Spirit represented by the Heavenly arena rather than on the land. 

Eze 17:23  On the mountain height of Israel will I plant it, that it may bear branches and produce fruit and become a noble cedar. And under it will dwell every kind of bird; in the shade of its branches birds of every sort will nest.

Eze 31:8-13  The cedars in the garden of God could not rival it, nor the fir trees equal its boughs; neither were the plane trees like its branches; no tree in the garden of God was its equal in beauty.  (9)  I made it beautiful in the mass of its branches, and all the trees of Eden envied it, that were in the garden of God.  … (12)  Foreigners, the most ruthless of nations, have cut it down and left it. On the mountains and in all the valleys its branches have fallen, and its boughs have been broken in all the ravines of the land, and all the peoples of the earth have gone away from its shadow and left it.  (13)  On its fallen trunk dwell all the birds of the heavens, and on its branches are all the beasts of the field.

Mat 13:32  which less, indeed, is than all the seeds, but when it may be grown, is greatest of the herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the heaven do come and rest in its branches.'

Blessings

OR the ox, lion, eagle and man are symbolic of Messiah. In the tabernacle Moses made these cherubims to adorn the mercy seat where they faced one another. (Ex 25).
