Clap your hands for songbird mamas.
There are many things to say about birds, here are a few:
- The early bird gets the worm.
- Bird brained.
- Bird’s eye view
- Pigeon toed
- Sings like a canary
- The first robin of spring
- Who ruffled her feathers?
- Take you under my wing, wing it alone
- Feather your nest, kicked out of the nest, empty nesters
- Snow birds
- Happy as a lark, crazy as a loon, silly as a goose, dumb as a dodo
- Birds of a feather flock together, light as a feather.
- Your goose is cooked.
- Gather your brood and get the flock out of here.
- What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
- She’s no spring chicken.
- A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
- Flip someone the bird.
- A little birdie told me.
The robin’s egg blue cover shows a nest full of baby birds with their beaks open, waiting to be fed. Inside is a bird nest full of chicks and Mama Songbird standing on the edge of the nest with a worm in her beak, ready to feed her babies. Below her are 4 adult songbirds on a vine, chatting.
Songbird mothers work hard to nourish their babies, protect them from harm and rear them. Most get help from daddy birds, but even those mama birds who do have help must forage for food every day from daylight to dark to feed hungry chicks.
The food is mostly protein-laden insects and worms to nurture healthy chick bodies. Songbirds feed their babies as often as 4 to 12 times an hour. That’s a lot of insects and worms!
