Bird Beaks

Lesson Description:

Watch birds. Notice their beaks and how different they are. Does a sparrow look like a hummingbird or a hawk?

In this activity, you will see if you can match the beaks with the foods birds eat. Birds eat many foods, including seeds, fish, small animals, fruit, and dead animals (carrion).
