1. How do bird lungs work? No clue, it isn’t something I’d ever thought about. I would have assumed the same way as ours?

2. How do birds keep cool? Our cockatoo used to fan his wings out. He also LOVED being sprayed with some water in hot weather so I guess they might splash about if they can find suitable water.

3. Which bird lays the biggest egg relative to body size? I’ll say a Kiwi. I wouldn’t have a clue

4. How is the dodo special? They didn’t fly? There are other birds like that though, so not that special.

5. And what’s with the boys in the picture? Are they showing off? Mating displays is my guess.
