Bird Feet, Bird Name

Nora is not looking forward to science class. There is a new science teacher and Nora has not done any of her homework.

Nora walks into the classroom and sees that the new teacher has put four birds on a table. The teacher has a cover on them so that only their feet show.

"What's this?" Nora asks the teacher.

"It's a test," says the teacher. "Your job is to name each bird by looking at its feet."

Nora, being a bit of a loud-mouth, shouts, "What a stupid test!"
