Have you ever thought about how many different bird beaks you’ve seen?
Why does a hummingbird beak look so much different than the beak on an eagle? Aren’t they both birds?
All animals have special adaptations that help them to survive in their environment. A very important adaptation for food gathering in birds is the size and shape of their beak.
Join our class as we focus on different types of bird beaks and discover how each type of beak functions in collecting specific types of food. Using everyday items that model different bird beaks, we’ll discover the mystery of why there is such a variety of bird beaks.
Then, when you see a bird, even if you don’t know what it is, you’ll be able to make an educated guess about what it eats.
