A certain population of birds can have one of three beak lengths: short, medium, or long. Birds with short and long beaks can more easily eat seeds than birds with medium beaks. A scientist studies this population of birds for ten years. Most of the birds at the beginning of the study have medium-sized beaks. 

 

How might natural selection change beak length in this population of birds over time? Move the labels to the boxes on the graph. 

Answer

Short Beak Length
