Letting them fly.......

Okay, this is where the avian kingdom and I disagree.  Birds have this time worn little habit of hatching their eggs, raising up their chicks, and then pushing them out of the nest.  We romanticize the concept by saying the baby birds are encouraged to spread their wings and fly.  Hogwash I say!  Maybe home base in birdie world is a little small and consideration has to be given to making room for future additions to the family and maybe mama bird is tired of getting up at the crack of dawn to dig up worms to shove down her kids' throats.  In my opinion, however, that only suggests poor planning on the part of the adult bird in building such a small nest.  And furthermore, couldn't they put more effort into teaching the young how to collect their own food rather than just kicking them out?  The whole system needs to be revamped if you ask me.  It wouldn't matter so much how our winged friends conduct their business if the analogy of "letting them spread their wings and fly" wasn't applied to human families with such irritating regularity!

By now you may be wondering what I've had for breakfast and why I'm so hung up on avian behavior.  Well, I'll tell you.  My baby boy moved to Florida this morning to start medical school and I don't like it one bit!  No, I really don't............
