1 of 2

In order to study the feeding behavior of birds using a bird feeder, these steps can be done:

1. Think of the type of bird you want to participate in the experiment. This will determine the type of bird feed that you will choose and provide in each station.

2. Prepare two bird feeders. Label it with bird feeder A and bird feeder B.

3. Put the bird feeders out and place them 12 meters away from each other.

4. Fill both feeders with seeds. Bird feeder A must be full of seeds every day. On the other hand, bird feeder B would only be filled with seeds once in every 3 days.

5. For three weeks, observe the birds during the morning, afternoon, and evening. List the number of birds that feed in each feeding station daily.

6. Summarize the results in a chart.
