Our seeds which affected our data. I

Our hypothesis was that if the beak of the bird is shorter than the food it will stay in it’s mouth and will be secure because the beak is sturdy and enclosed. Our hypothesis was accepted. Our averages were very close to the end of the ruler. Our averages were 29.2 for the piranh beak, 28.6 for the crocodile beak, 28.4 for the fork beak, and 23.2 for the swordfish beak. The trends were the longer the beak the higher chance the seeds dropped. We can prove this trend because the piranh beak was the shortest one and its average was 29.2 which is 0.8 cm away from 30 cm (which is how long the ruler was.) The sources of error was that the seeds would not fit in the beak, not every beak had the same amount of seeds which affected our data. I honestly think that if we had a longer ruler then our data could be even more accurate. This experiment connect to the real world because there are many types of different birds with different beaks. For example a sparrow has a short beak, it’s beak will allow to hold food in it without it dropping it. Another example is a long-billed curlew has a long, skinny beak. If this bird eats seeds or anything small it will probably drop some of it.
