brown headed cowbird

brown headed cowbird
female busy laying eggs...
bluebirds reject nest  

Brown Headed Cowbird
lays her eggs in other 
birds' nest and lets
the other birds feed her
young...Some birds know
that it is not their egg
and they will abandon
the nest or roll the egg
out..Some birds don't
figure it out and raise
their young..The Cowbird
doesn't have to build 
the nest or feed the young.
She stays busy laying eggs

    This is an interesting fact, I have never heard of that before, it might have to do with the fact that we don't have any cowbirds up here! I'm impressed with another wonderful Haiku Sara, you really are getting very good at these! I'm delighted by the splendor of the incredible poem my friend! I really enjoyed reading this amazing piece this morning! What a fantastic poem, such a great write! Awesome Work!!
