  • Challenge Question #4

    Thu, 13 Mar 1997 11:59:05 +0000

    We think that the anwser to challenge question #4 is that male robins return
    before females, because the males have to find their territory.

    ADVANTAGES- The advantages of arriving early are getting more food,
    finding your territory, and making a nest for your family.

    DISADVANTAGES- The disadvantages of arriving early are that the male
    would be lonely, it wouldn't have his mate, scientists catch them first, and they
    don't have any friends.
