Ask Yourself

  • What habitats did you find the most birds in? 

  • What colour were most of the birds you saw? Why do you think they are this colour? 

  • Did you see one type of bird multiple times? Which one(s)?

  • Which birds were hard to tell apart? How did you figure out which one was which?
