We have been keeping up the care for birds in our environment by hanging up bird feeders each week. At our observation station we have noticed that the starling, the sparrow and the robin are our most popular visitors and we have learned all about them this month.
Here are some of our Favourite Fun Facts:
Did you know that a starling can mimic (copy) human voices and other birds calls?
Starlings also lay their eggs in up to 5 different places and let other birds rare those chicks and only keep 1-2 chicks themselves.
Sparrows chicks are able to fly and leave the nest after only 15 days!
Every Robin has a unique red pattern on their chest. No two robins ever have the same pattern!
