Adaptations of birds and trees

  1. One adaptation that all observed species in the project have in common:
    All observed species do not have one common adaptation as we have 3 completely different types of organisms. Amongst our observations we have birds which feed on both the plants and the insects that we have observed. However, birds have adapted to their respective diets available to them in their habitats in different parts of the world. Beak size was a common feature observed whereby each bird had beak sizes in accordance to their diet, for example the Red Fody has a small beak allowing it to consume the small fig seeds while the seagull has a large beak allowing it to prey on fish.
    On the other hand, most the plants observed as bird diets, are tall trees, limiting their number of predators to animals with high reach, such as birds, bats etc.

  2. One unique adaptation for the Pycnonotus jocosus (Red-whiskered bulbul)
    It is a medium-sized songbird with a sharp beak which is slightly bigger than smaller species. It's sharp, pointy beak allows it to easily pluck off and consume fruit seeds such as the seeds on a fig tree. It's slightly bigger beak size allows it to eat larger insects which smaller-beaked songbirds wouldn't have access to.
