brown headed cowbird

brown headed cowbird female busy laying eggs... bluebirds reject nest Fact: 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 summer..

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!!
