birds leave the nest, the parents usually do, too. Each kind of bird has its
own way of building a nest.

WHY CAN BIRDS FLY?


A Birds could not fly without feathers. A baby bird must grow feathers
before it can fly. Feathers help the birds glide throught the air. They also
keep it warms and dry.
A bird´s bones are thin and small some are hollow. This makes the bird
light. Light things can fly more easily than heavy things.
HOW DOES A BABY BIRD GET OUT OF ITS EGG?
Have you ever wonderdr how baby birds gets out of the egg? While the
baby bird is still inside the egg, a hard Little “egg tooth” forms on the end
of its beak. With its eggs tooth, it pecks away at the egg Shell until the
Shell cracks.
After the baby is out of the egg, it no longer needs its egg tooth, so it falls
off.
