Storyboard Text

  • This is a red tail hawk that has a dark bottom and a dark top.
  • The hawk on the lower branch has lighter colors.
  • Their offspring could have a mix of their colored feathers. This is how they evolve over time.
  • One of the birds was very bright, so when a camouflaged snake struck it, the bird died. It was a smaller bird so it was easily killed. 
  • The bigger of the two had dark feathers and was able to survive more easily in the wild. It's great hight also contributed to that.
  • Natural Selection occurs in this, because one of the young birds had a lighter feather colors and was quickly spotted and killed. The other hawk got its father's dark feathers and was a bigger bird overall so it was able to survive.
