The Early Bird Gets the Worm...

but so do the rest of them. Sometimes they even get fatter worms than the early bird did.

Just another one of my nature observations. The first bird out in our garden is a robin. It is out just before the break of dawn every morning. The old adage refers to the fact that if you are first you will generally get more. Even in nature that is not the case. None of the birds that come later every morning are any hungrier than that robin.

I wish I would have learned that lesson earlier in life. I would have gotten much more sleep.
