Next message: IMS: "Challenge Question#4"
We think that robins may fly at different altitudes than hawks because:
_ the robins are protecting themselves from this predator
- hawks might have stronger wings that enable them to fly higher
- hawks have better eye sight so they can still see the ground and their
prey from far above the earth
We think that nocturnal migrants may fly higher than day migrants because:
-they fly higher at night to make sure they don't collide with any objects
- they also are trying to avoid night time predators like the owl
We continue to have a great time answering these questions.
