Mrs.Urban's Visit

Hi, this is Grace, Paige and Jane. On December 11th, we had a visit from Mrs. Urban. She presented how birds survive in the winter. One thing that keeps the birds warm is that all birds are endothermic, which means they maintain their tempature internally. Another way that most birds keep themself warm is puff up their feathers and then put one leg up to their feathers. Some people get alarmed when they see these "one legged birds". Another time when people get alarmed is when they see 10 legs instead of two! This happens because little babies want to get in their mom's fluff of the feathers. At the end, our class created pine cone bird feeders that had a layer of Crisco and an assortment of seeds. We always look forward to having Mrs.Urban visit our classroom! Have a birdilicious day!
