Manic Monday 14th Edition

This Week's Theme: Survive


This video was shot with my digital camera on my front porch this afternoon and I thought as I uploaded it onto my computer how cool is it that birds just SURVIVE when pushed outta the nest. Although this bird looks a bit old to just be pushed out of the nest, it seemed to have a bit of trouble flying. It made me think of how overprotective I am of my children and birds just push their babies out of the nest and their natural instinct teaches them to flap their little wings and begin their life out of the nest! How amazing is that!? Just think that if birds can SURVIVE, then so can we! I hope you all enjoyed this little home movie from my front porch.
If you're playing along this week, don't forget to sign Mr Linky
and head on over to the
MM Headquarters and sign there as well!!

We do cotton wool our kids a bit... when I was young, during the weekends our parents wouldn't see my brother and I until dinner time... couldn't imagine that happening now.

I agree with you ! animal mothers are the best, but when baby is a teenager (or twenty) they just kick their children out and are ready for the next lot ! I couldn't imagine that for myself, lol !
I also have a video .... (another style, lol!)

Kai said...

I have been throwing my teenage son off the porch for 2 weeks now. He just gets up, climbs back into the nest and keeps eating. He don't act nothing like that. Am I doing this wrong?

LOL

Good Post.

Later Y'all

That's a cool video. At first there's a little confusion. But once you get organized and find your bearings, you can figure out which way to go.
