Activity Sheet Summary
It's All in the Beak: Ever wonder what a bird uses its beak for? Well, they can use them to clean themselves; picking bugs and dirt from their feathers. More importantly, they use their beaks to gather food. You can tell what a bird eats, as well as what kind of bird it is, by the shape of its beak. Match the birds below with the food in the boxes. Some birds may eat more than one thing. Use the descriptions below to help you choose the one food they “mostly” eat. Draw a line from the bird to the food.
