WHY WOULD THE EGRET WITH THE BIRD FOOT PRINTS ON IT’S BACK CHOOSE A CAREER SUCH AS THIS.?
FIRST OF ALL…I DIDN’T KNOW THAT BIRDS HAD TO LAND ON THE BACK OF ANOTHER BIRD WHEN THEY WANT TO LAND.
SECONDLY, HOW DOES A BIRD DECIDE THAT IT WANTS TO BECOME A BIRD LANDING PLATFORM IN THE FIRST PLACE?? IS IT A FAMILY CAREER KIND OF THING…LIKE WITH HUMANS WHERE THERE IS A LONG HISTORY OF FAMILY MEMBERS BECOMING POLICE OFFICERS OR FIREMEN?
AND ONE MORE “WONDER”…HOW DO THEY PRACTICE UNTIL THEY LEARN THEIR CRAFT? WHO VOLUNTEERS TO FLY HIGH UP INTO THE AIR AND THEN TAKE THE CHANCE THAT THE LANDING PLATFORM BIRD WILL BE IN THE RIGHT SPOT AT THE RIGHT TIME? PERHAPS THAT IS ANOTHER CAREER PATH THAT A BIRD CHOOSES…I WONDER WHAT THAT CAREER IS CALLED? SIGH…I SUPPOSE I WILL NEVER KNOW, UNLESS YOU ALL HAVE SOME INFORMATION THAT YOU COULD PROVIDE?
Once again, I introduce you to our friend, the Cardinal.
Can you imagine doing this over and over and over? I mean…think about it…they’re like Olympians…they’ve got the cool outfit and amazing athletic ability. I never thought about it before, but do you suppose there are different levels of ability with birds?
Are there Gold Medal level birds?
Are there Silver Medal level birds?
Are there Bronze Medal level birds?
Are there birds who just fly along with average level bird abilities?
Somewhere out in the woods there might be a huge bird arena, with enough branches to seat 10,000 birds. Maybe on Saturdays in the summer they gather on the branches and watch the really excellent birds compete for prizes. Traffic must be a nightmare when the event’s over.
Unless there are police birds who direct bird traffic. I wonder if they blow a whistle when they’re directing traffic?
