London, Feb 10: A study about British children’s knowledge of wild birds has revealed that they can name just three birds on an average.
According to a survey, most of the 1,000 kids aged between six to 15 said they were not taught about the birds at school, the Daily Express reported.
Another 40 percent said they did not have a bird bath, table or nest box.
As per the survey for pet food store and insurers Pets at Home, 47 percent of the children could name only three birds – most commonly the robin, blue tit and swan.
But despite their lack of knowledge, 70 percent of the children said they feed birds in winter.
