Find as many bird body part words of three letters or more as you can.  Words are made up from letters that are horizontally, vertically, or diagonally adjacent in the grid.  You may use each letter only once per word.  I found 15 words.  How will you do?

(example – locate the word “Cake”)

  • 1-5 words:       You love birds, but they’re a mystery to you
  • 6-9 words:       You can find your way around a bird
  • 10-13 words:   You’re a bird brain (that’s a compliment!)
  • 14-15 words:   That’s why they call you Leader of the Flock!

Bonus: Three more things birds possess which are not body parts.
