Whats killdeer? Some type of deer or is it coots kill deer. I can't see how a small black duck could kill a deer. :lol:

You just have to write all the plants and small creatures at the bottom and humans (i can only see ducks and shellfish as things we eat off that list) and birds of prey at the top, then sort it out a bit. I'm not doing it as it looks like your homework and I have work to do of my own :|
