The Beak of the BirdAnimal Kingdom
- Erin McCullough
Different kinds of birds have beaks of different sizes and shapes. I divided 10 bird species into two groups, those with large beaks and those with small beaks. I found that birds with big beaks mostly ate bigger seeds. Birds with small ones mostly ate small seeds. But no birds ate only one kind of seed. Perhaps they need different kinds for better nutrition.

A Darwin in the making! I never thought about this when I was learning about bird beaks. Great ideas and research!
Nice use of furthering project ideas: measuring, removing suet as feeding source and checking what the waxwings eat. Good job!
