Feeding adaptations in beaks. When identifying a mystery bird, the shape of the beak will tell you a lot about it’s lifestyle. Looking at the conformation of the body and the shape of the wings will also give a good indication as to what that bird has evolved to do (catch fish / bugs etc).
I LOVE THIS. Kids take two different animals and combine their adaptations to create a whole new animal, labeling each part of course. Where does the new animal live? What does it eat? Is it a predator?
