Next message: Allison Bailey: "Challenge Question #2"
We think the amount of sunlight is related to the robins food-web because
as the amount of sunlight increases so does the average temperature
outside. As the temperature rises, the snow and ice melts allowing the
ground to thaw and the earthworms to emerge. Also when there is less
sunlight other sources of food for the robins fade ( berries, seeds) so
they must migrate to areas where food is more available. Added to this,
the sun helps the plants to grow that the robins feed on.
Thanks, we are having so much fun with this program.
