Personal review
Bird Week is a simple, cute action game where you control a mother bird and have to collect butterflies/insects to feed your baby birds until they are ready to leave the nest. Also avoid numerous predators that try to catch you. The simple gameplay is accompanied by below average graphics and rather annoying music and clearly aimed at kids. Wikipedia categorizes this game amongst "biological simulations", but I think that is really far-fetched. You can't influence development of anything at all.

As a mother bird, you must gather worms and insects to feed your chicks. The won't eat until they're hungry. They die of hunger fairly quickly after demanding to eat. You can only carry one bite at a time. You have two or more chicks. Watch out for predators who are after you as you go hunting for your own prey.
Originally published by Toshiba-EMI. The VG Pocket Mini version is titled Worm Catcher.
