Thoughts: A mother bird must give her babies undivided attention in order for her little ones to survive.
Every daylight hour is filled with repeated trips to fill her bill so that she can nourish her fast growing nestlings.
Each baby receives 35 to 40 feedings a day, keeping mother bird busy until near exhaustion morning to night.
Baby birds are so demanding that 90 percent of bird species require efforts of two parents to successfully feed and raise their young.
My daughter and daughter-in-law are the best little mother birds I know.
I watch in amazement as they feed, nurture and love their little nestlings.
They work from morning until night to make the best home and be the best mother they can be.
With two good husbands always there to help.
It makes this old bird tired just watching.
My grandchildren are blessed and so am I.
