In this workshop for children the team from Walther von Goethe Foundation asks the question: What nationality do birds have?

The participating children will get to know the Odin's Scrub Fowl (Phalaropus lobatus), a bird which lives a few months in Iceland, where it breeds, but also a few months on the coast of the Saudi Arabian Peninsula or the West African coast. So is the proto-queer Odin's grouse an Icelandic bird, a European bird, or an Arabian, West African bird? How are birds nationalized?
