Kings Play Chess On Fine Glass Sets.

I should have probably done this post a while ago but no matter.
Kings Play Chess On Fine Glass Sets.
What in the world?
Well the first letters in each of those words stand for an other word. The words: Kingdom,
Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus and Species.
Each of these different words has a different purpose and if you wont to be a zoo keeper of a scientist or any other job that you need to know about animals this is the first thing you need to learn
Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus and Species.
Well we are doing birds right now so naturally so let's just pick a bird like the Black Necked Swan. They would be in the Kingdom Animaliea . That is quite a mouthful.
Next it would go in to the Phylum Chordata witch basically means "with a backbone". So birds have a back bone.

Next, Class Aves . Don't ask me what it means I haven't found that out, but I will tell you as soon as I do. But I think that it might be the Latin word for bird.
ODER. This divides up song birds, birds of prey, birds of the water and so on. And because we are doing The Black Necked Swan that would go into the Order of Water Birds.
Family. The B. N. Swan would be in the family of Swans. This is cutting the field down quite a bit.

Genus. That divides the Black Necked Swan from the Trumpeter Swan.
Then last, Spices. And that is wear the Black Necked Swan belongs.

Egyptain Coursers

The Egyptian Coursers is like a Niel Crocodile's dentist. This odd little bird keeps the crocodile's teeth all clean and shinny and in return the courser gets a free meal. This system works out splendidly for all concerned.
When this was first seen it was past off as consents but then as it was seen to be extremely common it was realized that the Courser really did clean the crocodiles teeth.
Using it's long legs the Coursers rest on the crocodiles mouth.
As you doubtless know, Egypt is extremely hot, so how do Coursers survive?
Well GOD gave them the remarkably instinct to keep their eggs safe and cool.
The Courser buries it's in the sane and then throws water up on to the sand that covers the eggs to keep them cool.

Feather Color

So how do birds get their colors?
Well there are many ways that birds get their colors.
The first is: The pigments that give a animal or person their color. So some birds get their color from Pigments. There are some animals with no pigments and so they are white and their eyes are red.
Their eyes are red because of having no pigments the light reflex off of their eyes turning them red.
The second way is what they eat. Pink Flamingos eat a lot of Plankton that gives them their pink color.
The third way is reflection. For instants: A Peacock gets all it's bright coloring form how the light reflex off of their feathers. -A Humming Bird's feathers also reflect.
A Blue Jay's feathers are the same way. If you where to crush up a Blue Jay's feather it would be white. That is because the feather only turns pink if the feather is all together.
And so that is a little on feathers.
