Look at the picture below.

Can you describe the position of the birds?

My friend says she can describe the pink bird as being 8 m away from the birdwatcher. Is this correct? What about the direction? How can we describe that? Is there a way to describe both the position and direction at the same time?

My other friend says using a coordinate grid would be really helpful. What is a coordinate grid? How would it help us find the position of the birds? 

Remember the x axis is horizontal (across) and the y axis is vertical (up)
