  • This is the second day we are learning about umbrella birds. It is actually the first time that I have encountered such animal. Even as my son’s teacher, I am thrilled to be learning a lot myself. The focus for this week’s animal is the sound of “short U”. This is one of the images that we found from the internet of an umbrella bird. The umbrella bird has a tuft of feathers that rises from the top of tis head. This tuft of feathers makes the umbrella bird look as if it is carrying an umbrella all the time. The umbrella bird also has a flap of skin hanging down the ront of its neck. This flap of skin is covered with feathers and looks like an umbrella handle. Although the umbrella bird seems strange, it is a pretty bird. Its feathers are blue-black and shiny. The umbrella bird is about the size of a crow.

    The umbrella bird inhabits South and Central American rainforests. There are three species of umbrella bird: long-wattled umbrella bird, Amazonian umbrella bird and the bare-necked umbrella bird.

    The long wattle hanging from the chest and large crest extending over the bill of male bird makes long-wattled umbrella bird looking so weird. Their wattle has length up to 35 cm, covered with short feathers and it is inflatable, used during courtship. Both crest and wattle of female bird is much shorter than that of a male bird.
