The Twite bird


A man called Derek came to our school talking about a Twite. A Twite is a type of bird that is nearly extinct. It lives in Mayo and Donegal and some other parts of the world .They make nests in the heather on mountains so nobody can hurt them. The man put rings on their feet so he will recognise the bird . They have brown legs and you have to hold them a special way. The man that came showed us some of the plants that Twites feed on like Sorrel,Forget me not,meadow buttercups,plantain,bird foot trefoil and much more flowers and plants. The mother and father collect the bird poo and drop it on the ground. The man took us outside and planted seeds in our garden. When they grow the Twites might give us a visit. Siobhán and Liam
