in our project i think me and Lilly did really well i think well with presenting the information neatly and clearly and making sure that we had the same amount of information each!
i think we could have worked quicker instead of planning half the time, we could have started our project earlier.

Budgerigars and also known as the common parrot, are green and yellow native
birds to the Australian dessert. They have been adapting and living in Australia
for over 5 million years.
1. Budgerigar’s feathers are able to absorb water so they can go longer
periods of time without water.
2. They are brightly coloured (yellow and green) so the sun light reflects
off of them so they can stay cool and so they can camouflage in the more greener
3. They fly in big groups or flocks so they don’t get eaten by predators.
4. They are able to fly for long periods of time to look for food and water.
5. They eat lots of dry food to stay hydrated
One of the main adaptations of a budgerigar is its colours. Its bright green and
yellow help it camouflage in the wild. They also have a very flexible tongue that
allows them to eat seeds and nuts whole. A way they stay cool is their feathers
can soak up moisture from the dew in the mornings. Budgerigars can maintain a
small size around 18 – 20cm so they can camouflage better and so it is harder for
predators to catch them.
To stay cool budgerigars will bathe in damp grass and will drink up to 5.5% of
their body weight daily. To make sure they drink that amount of water they will
try to locate themselves near dams, rivers and other water sources. To make sure
they are always near a source of water they migrate all year round. This means
they do not build nest as they are always leaving and following where the water
goes. They will nest in hollow logs and trees. Their flocks can range from 3 –
100 birds. They use these flocks to protect each other by confusing predators
like the Australian hobby and butcherbirds by flying in many different directions
The key adaptations for the survival of the budgerigars is the way it migrates
all year round. This is crucial to its survival because if they don’t migrate
they will die of thirst. This adaptation has lead them to adapt the way they
nest. They have adapted to nesting in hollow logs trees instead of building nest.
Building nest has become a waste of a budgerigar’s time so using hollow logs and
trees means they can spend more time looking for water
They can live in cold and coastal environment and they can even live in dessert
Some areas in the dessert can be very hot and that can lead to budgerigars to
Budgerigars are never found in Tasmania, cape York and coastal areas of east and
Adaptations – the process of change by which an organism or species becomes
better suited to its environment.
Camouflage – hide or disguise the presence of (a person, animal, or object)
Moisture – wetness caused by water
Predators – an animal that naturally preys on others
Water sources – is a place that stores or has water
Migrate – an animal that moves from one region or habitat to another according to
Flocks – a number of birds of one kind feeding, resting, or travelling together
We are doing a research project on animal adaptations on the budgerigars. We have to make predictions on what their adaptations are.
1 A budgerigar feathers are able to absorb water so they can go longer periods of time without water
2 They are brightly coloured (yellow and green) so the sun light reflects off of them and stay cooler and so they can camouflage in the more greener trees
3 They fly in big groups or flocks so they don’t get eaten by predators
4 They are able to fly for long periods of time to look for food and water
5 They eat lots of moist food to keep hydrated
today we went to the aquarium and it was loads of fun I really enjoyed looking at the animals cause I was also learning new things at the same time. when we went into the shark and stingray area it was really cool but also a little scary at the same time.
today I learnt that starfishes aren’t really called star fishes their called sea stars. I also learnt that crocodiles can stay under water with out breathing for 2 hours. crocodiles heartbeat can go up to 2 mins without a beat.
we got to touch starfishes and they felt really ruff I also touched a shark egg. my favorite animal was the penguins and the dory fish it was really pretty.
BTN Weedy sea dragon
fact 1. 50 kilometers from Sydney is were you will find a sea dragon
fact 2. they can be found in the south and east of the Sydney coast.
question 1. can sharks or any other big animals form under the sea eat sea horses?
question 2. what are sea horses predators?
1. they have got a very unique print and there pattern is very pretty.
100 word challenge 🍔
Today was Victoria my cousins 6th birthday i was so exited we were going to this burger place and I’ve been there before and they sell the worlds best burgers!! So i started to get ready for the party i picked out the most prettiest pink dress in my closet.
then we got into the car and went to the burger place. when i got there they were already having cake and singing happy birthday i was confused!
happy birthday i said to Victoria.
oh my said Victoria and her mum pillar, your so late you missed the worlds best burger!🍔🍔🍔🍔🍔🍔🍔🍔🍔🍔🍔🍔🍔🍔🍔
I’m so sorry i’m late how early did you start? i thought the party started at 3:00 not 12:30?? it started on time like the invitation said.
then my Auntie Pillar came and said i’ll order you a burger. then 5 mins later this delicious burger comes to me from out of the wall.
from out of know where Victoria said go grab your burger from out of the wall, the new service is that they serve burgers from out of the wall. I was amazed!!
USA is the richest and Korea is the poorest. The different between USA and Korea is $16810. Spain Italy and Greece are almost the same in wealth. This graph is the right kind of graph because you use a bar graph for categorical data and are large amounts and our data it both of those things.
BTN school waste/wipe out waste
fact 1. talking rubbish is encouraged at there school.
fact 2. Australians throw out 50 million tonnes of waste witch is 2 tons of a person.
question 1. why do people litter?
question 2. don’t they care that animals can die with plastic or litter it could suffocate them!
i think its not OK for litter, people should think twice and stop being lazy and just go to the bin.
