Some birds feed while walking or standing on the ground, some feed while perching in trees or while flying, others while hanging from twigs.

 

Watch how birds search for food in the school grounds.

 

Make a chart to show how different birds search for food. Here is an example:

You will need a separate chart for each type of bird.

 

Conclusions

 

  • Is there a link between the size of a bird and the way it searches for food?
  • Which birds are able to search for food in more than one way?
  • How does this help them to survive?
  • Is there a connection between the way that birds feed naturally and the way they feed on food you put out in winter?
