She brought the dead Blackbird to school so we could look at it up close. Usually we just see birds in the distance.
|We examined its wings. It has long pin feathers and shorter downy feathers.|
|The body is covered with soft downy feathers.|
It has three toes pointing forwards and a long toe behind to help it grip branches.
|We decided to bury it in the Butterfly Garden.|
|We placed it in the hole and covered it with earth.|
We marked the spot and decided to dig it up later in the year to see if it has left a skeleton.
