Nesting Behavior

Written by: Jon A Cavanaugh

She doesn't want a wood framed mattress
Made of thatch and thorn

She wants a nice soft feather bed 
For her babies when they're born

Her mate constructs a noble nest
And sees he crafts the very best

She'll incubate the eggs she'll lay
He'll chase foraging prey away

The embryos beneath her chest
Keep warm and gestate as she rests

Her mate alert surveys the yard
And constantly remains on guard
