Great story…in one of my animal science classes in college, our professor told us that some birds have a one seed margin of survival. They don’t have the luxury of fattening up like mammals do, so if they don’t eat for a day, or if the feeder they usually visit is empty, they may die. I told my husband that years ago and now when my bird feeders get below half full, he gets all jumpy, worried that we’ll starve out all our little songbirds.
You’ll never know that past or future of that little bluebird…but you’ll always remember that brief little moment.
Very enjoyable and relatable writing.
