T. Emlen did a field experiment with cliff swallows. These birds use mud to build nests under cliffs and the eaves of buildings. Unlike most birds, which defend a wide territory around their nests, cliff swallows build their nests next to one another in colonies, as shown in Figure 11. Emlen wondered whether these birds would defend their nests. Because the swallows looked so much alike, Emlen had to find a way to identify them in his experiment. He crept up close to the colony he was observing.

If you decide to use a project found in this book for a science fair, you will need to find ways to modify or extend it. This should not be difficult because you will probably find that as you do these projects new ideas for experiments will come to mind. These new experiments could make excellent science fair projects, particularly because they spring from your own mind and are interesting to you.
