Poor Little Birdie

Poor Little Birdie

My husband and I were at he park as usual when we saw a mother bird teaching her baby bird to fly. The baby was so cute. It was flying but with no control what so ever just bobbling up and down in the air.

Unfortunately they started to fly across the road. Here comes a car and the baby bird is in perfect position to get hit. All of a sudden the mama bird swoops down and knocks the baby bird out of the way of the car. Mama gets hit and dies.

We went over and picked up the baby bird which you shouldn't do because it throws them into shock but its mother just died and it was obvious that it couldn't take care of itself. We took it to the park ranger who said he would try to save it.

Most people believe that animals don't have feelings(especially wild animals ) but here was a mother bird who gave her life for her baby when she saw that it was in danger. It was noble and sad and sweet all at the same time.
