We really hope you have enjoyed our study area over the past couple of weeks all about 'Birds'. We hope you have learned the names of some of the birds that visit your garden or that you see whilst you are out and about...and we hope you understand a little bit more about what birds use to make their nests, and about how they lay eggs inside them ready to incubate.
Please continue to look for different birds whilst you are out and about or playing in the garden.
Do you know what kind of birds they are?
Can you spot any baby chicks with the birds?
If you are very lucky, you might see a nest- have a little peek if you can, but be careful if there are any eggs- remember, Mummy and Daddy are probably incubating them!
To finish off our learning about Birds, we need to find out about how those little chicks grow and change.
Look at the video below to watch lots of different birds feeding their chicks.
Those baby birds were all certainly very hungry!!
Did you see how they open their beaks and make a very loud sound to remind Mummy and Daddy to feed them! You may see birds at the moment flying about with food in their beaks- they are probably flying back to the nest to feed some chicks.
Baby chicks grow and change very quickly!
Watch this video to watch a blackbird chick from when it first hatches to when it is ready to leave the nest.
Finally, the baby chicks have grown into fledglings.
This means they are just about grown-up and ready to leave the nest.
But that first flight can be a little bit scary!!
