I have a bird eater for them. We put bird-seed on it and we put peanut butter on it
so the bird-seed sticks to it. And I see a rainbow. I like rainbows. All ofthem are
my favourite colours. I hang the bird eater on my backyard tree every night. Every
day when it's breakfast they come out to eat. Nanny Barb has a bird eater too.
She has a pet bird called Bird. Poppy makes the eaters . . . I take the bird feeder
off our tree and take it to the park and hold it. Then the birds come up to it. It
makes me ...

Luckily, it is easy to stay way from the aggressive bird-eating spider. Unlike most
spiders, the bird-eating spider makes noise when feels threatened. Rubbing
together stiff bristles on its legs, the bird-eating spider can create a loud hissing
sound. The spider's hiss can be heard up to fifteen feet away. Goliath Bird Eater
Goliath Bird Eater is the largest spider on earth. Goliath Bird Eaters eat insects
and small snakes. When provoked, the Goliath Bird Eater will bite with their one-

The torch would sputter and return her to darkness soon, when the bird died. But
for now, her second heart, her birdheart, beat on. She learned two things. First,
the queen's quarters were far above, and the only way to get there was to fly. And
—able now to understand the bird chatter and calls around her—she also
learned that she had been observed after all. Another young sparrow had seen
her in the corner, swallowing his brother alive. He had raised the alarm: Birdeater

The South American Goliath birdeater is the world's largest spider . The Goliath
birdeater measures 1 foot (0.3 meter) across. It can weigh more than 6 ounces (
170 grams). That's about the size of a newborn puppy! But despite its name, this
terrifying tarantula doesn't often eat birds. Instead it eats nearly anything it finds
on the ground. Usually it's earthworms. Sometimes it's the brains of a rodent or
frog. The birdeater lies in wait in its home on the forest floor. A mouse scurries by.

Mr. Wallace thinks that the bird-eater mimics the insect-eater, so as to deceive the
birds, which are not afraid of the latter. But if the two hawks look alike, would not
the birds come to regard them both as bird-eaters, since one of them does eat
birds? Would they not at once identify the harmless one with their real enemy and
thus fear them both alike ? If the latter were newcomers and vastly in the minority,
then the ruse might work for a while. But if there were ten harmless hawks around

The Goliath Birdeater Spider The Goliath (guh-LIE-eth) birdeater spider's name
isn't quite right. Goliath means ''large'' and it is the biggest spider in the world, but
it doesn't eat birds. However, it does eat mice. It also eats crickets and other bugs.
How the Goliath Birdeater Kills Its Prey The Goliath birdeater can hurt its prey in
two ways. Its hairs have sharp points on the end. It can stick its prey with those. It
can also bite. It has sharp fangs. The fangs carry venom that poisons their prey.

The energy the bird spends to come and see what's going on may have been put
to better use in ways that benefit it—collecting food, cleaning its feathers, or
chasing off that peeping tom from down the block. ○○ Luring songbirds into the
open can put them or their families at risk. If a predator is lurking—where's that
neighbor's cat?—the sight or motion of the bird, or the sound of the pishing, can
make the bird-eater curious enough to investigate, too. That could spell certain
death if ...
