How well do you know the birds that live around your house? A group of birds could be members of a family, or a community of carers, a flock, or a gang of singles. Can you tell which one is the leader or which one is the father, mother, the brother or the sister? Do you know which kid has come for a sleep-over and which one is being wooed? Which is the bird that has just chased off a predator like the cat, or hawk, or snake or even an eagle. How do they help each other stay safe? Birds are some of the most fascinating social creatures that live in the wild around our homes, no matter where we live. Whether you live in an apartment in the city, or have a house in the suburbs or in the countryside, you can enjoy a connection with nature.
