Join us as we learn about the cool and unique superpowers that waterfowl have! We will explore unique adaptations such as counter current blood flow to help keep the feet warm, feather styles adapted for warmth, flight, and courtship displays, and webbed foot styles for all environments.
We will investigate:
Waterfowl: What they are and makes this group of birds unique
Feet, beaks and feathers: How these adaptations perfectly suit birds for their habitats
Imprinting: How we train our birds for success in the classroom
