By examining birds, your students will see how wildlife adapts to the environment:
•How birds’ bodies are suited to their climat and habitat.
•What variety of foods birds eat.
•How to identify birds by their appearance and calls.

Bud and Celia discover that birds are at home in a variety of environments, not just in trees. Your children will see that ducks are well suited to the water with their webbed feet for swimming and wide bills for catching fish; and a chickadee is small and light, just the right size for perching on plants and pecking out tiny seeds. Crinkleroot shows how birds have different “calls” or songs, and Celia visits a raptor recovery center where hawks are rescued and returned to the wild. Later, Crinkleroot and a young friend teach your students how to build a bird feeder out of a bleach bottle, and another child demonstrates the fun hobby of bird watching.

Teacher’s Guide activities help your students discover:
•How to look at birds’ nests and analyze the materials used to build them.
•Why certain beak shapes work best for certain types of bird food.
•How to research a bird, from its species to habitat.
