Watching all of the nesting activity and subsequently the "training" of the baby birds that are hatched in the nests inspired these pages. I can sense the frustration and weariness of the parents as they guide their little ones around showing them how to hunt food and stay away from danger. Their babies are loud and demanding. I used funny descriptions out of a vintage bird book to describe the feelings of the parents and human babies to illustrate that the experience of humans and birds when it comes to offspring is similar. This is my entry for the Three Muses Challenge this week.
