(Eddie, age 4) Enjoying nature Be it in the gardens of families, friends and
relations, or at local parks and beaches, or further afield, a love of nature figured
prominently among these Limestone Town children's thematic interests. For
example: The flowers are important because we've got flowers growing on our
road and in our yard and driveway. (Graham, age 4) I like butterflies and wrens. I
see them every day and every night. I have a bird eater for them. We put bird-
seed on it and we ...

Luckily, it is easy to stay way from the aggressive bird-eating spider. Unlike most
spiders, the bird-eating spider makes noise when feels threatened. Rubbing
together stiff bristles on its legs, the bird-eating spider can create a loud hissing
sound. The spider's hiss can be heard up to fifteen feet away. Goliath Bird Eater

Goliath. birdeater. Theraphosa blondi Regarded as the largest spider in the world
, this tarantula has a leg span that could cover a dinner plate, and a mass of
about 170g (6 oz), which far outweighs any of its rivals. Only Asia's giant
huntsman spider has a larger leg span. Goliath birdeater females are much
larger than the males. The name “birdeater” is based on a 1705 engraving by
German naturalist Maria Sibylla Merian, which showed a Goliath birdeater
devouring a hummingbird.

According to our sentimental " School of Nature Study," the birds should have
untied and unsnarled the strings in a human way, but they did not; they simply
tugged at them, bringing their weight to bear, and tried to fly away with the loose
end. In view of the ignorance of birds with regard to strings, how can we credit ...

It is in the winter and early spring, that the kestril becomes a bird-eater. It will then
destroy the blackbird and the thrush; and the remains of a skylark have been
found in the craw of a male bird. To this it is probably driven from the scarcity of
insects : for during the summer and autumn, when, if birds were preferred to
insects, the young broods of the year would afford an ample supply, the writer
does not remember to have found the peculiar collection of feathers, forming
sometimes a ...

Now, if this is a case of mimicry by natural selection, we may inquire which bird
mimics and which is mimicked. The resemblance cannot be a protection; if useful
at all, it must be an assistance in catching prey; and it .seems probable at once
that the bird-eating hawk is thus assisted, being mistaken by small birds for the
insect-eating hawk, of which they are not afraid; hence, that the bird-eater has
been bred by natural selection to resemble the other. And this conclusion is
corroborated ...
