Mama Bird – Haiku

As the cool wind blows
bird feathers fluffed in the air
Elegantly preens

Preparing for young
to look her best when they hatch
Open to the world

Mama to three kids
determined to raise these chicks
Maternal instincts

The feature image is a Great Egret preening while incubating her eggs in a nest at the Alligator Farm in St. Augustine, Florida.

    • In many cases, yes. For example, the Emperor Penguin takes care of the egg and cares for the hatchling while mom is away for feeding for two months. Did you see “March of the Penguins”? They are not the only exception. Bald Eagles take turns incubating their eggs and both take care of the young equally. That’s what I call having a mate! LOL! 🙂

      • March of the Penguins was incredible. Released in many different languages, but the American version was narrated by Morgan Freeman and won several awards. Nominated for many more. Great nature flick. You certainly appreciate their hard way of life.

        Yes, the Bald Eagles have it right. If you ever get a chance, check out the Decorah Eagles. They have already started building their nest and will be laying the eggs soon. They usually hatch at the beginning of April. The eagle cam is live 24-7. The history about this project is extensive and really cool. I watch them for a little while each day starting in about a week or two. Here is the link if you want to check it out.

      • Well, the IT guys will get the cameras moved or new cameras put up if they find the nest. I can’t imagine they won’t have it set up in time for them to begin their yearly ritual. 🙂

      • I have full confidence they will, but they certainly don’t sound confident. That really stinks! I have been watching them for years. Up close and personal.
