Birds are amazing animals. I love hearing them sing seeing them fly. All different colors and breeds. They own the skies and the trees. I am a big fan of the birds almost all the time. I don’t really like it when the poop on my car but I am still a fan. Just amazed by them.

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be a bird. I mean I wouldn’t trad places no, but what is that life like? Is it free cutting through the air soaring out there. Then I read something like this article . The article explains in detail the brood parasite birds. To sum it up, a brood parasite bird lays eggs like other birds but she lays the eggs in other birds nests. The brood parasites, baby birds, hatch lings or chicks are a little larger than the nests host family hatch lings or chicks. Because of the size of the brood parasites off spring in comparison to the size of the nest family, the brood parasite baby steals resources and usually kill all the other hatch lings.

So it seems the bird life is not as free as it seems. When it comes to things like raising kids and taking care of the family almost all species experience some type of struggle. My mom used to tell me that the grass always seem greener on the other side of the fence and that I should focus on the tasks in front of me and enjoy the moments in my life and time right now. She was right it can be easy to look at someone else and envy their situation before fully understanding it.

There is nothing wrong with wanting freedom and peace but we have to understand that these states are worked towards and found through employing hard work, like a diligent mother checking or eggs.
