There are also a few tips as to what to do when finding an injured bird or wildlife on the site.
Tiger 09/13/10 04:05 pm Oh that is so touching Celeste. One of those genuine awww moments.
Anne 09/13/10 04:34 pm Thats so upsetting. Reminds me of the time a Magpie killed a female Spotted flycatcher and her newly hatched chicks in a nest in my garden. The male Flycatcher stayed around for the rest of the day making the most plaintive cries you have ever heard. From that day on I have believed that birds do have feelings.
Tiger 09/13/10 05:05 pm I grew up in the country and I was surrounded by bird's nests. When one was raided by a cat or a bid like a magpie the parent stayed around making loud cries for the rest of the day as if in mourning.
Tiger 09/14/10 10:26 am This has been discussed in a few places and new things have come to light. It has been suggested that it is love alright but of the phsyical kind. The male may be trying to copulate with the female!
DaisyG 09/14/10 11:37 am Have tried to find the origin of these pictures but so far unsuccessful.

I think we have to accept that things are not always as they seem and we see what we want to see.
martyc35 09/14/10 12:52 pm Many years ago, I was laboring under the delusion that creatures as lowly as ants were collecting their dead and wounded to take them home for burial. Only years later did it dawn on me that they were simply gathering food for the nest. We see what we want to see, indeed, Daisy. LOL.
