If you could save a sweet-looking baby chickadee/finch from the clutches of a Raven would you?


Hearing bangs against my bedroom wall, by the time I investigated a Raven was just flying off with the sweet-looking baby bird for a big oak tree to enjoy its meal. The other small birds had but up a tremendous fight to save it but the Raven was too big. Where do you think our emotions and interventions in nature should begin and end?

    Very well thought out and said, junkseller. For every adorable thing in nature there is something not so. tis the way of the universe. Maybe Marius was different though for the circumstances... or not.

    Hi Genna! We're both kinda up early for a Sun in the EST lol. Thank goodness most of us love babies from all stripes and that includes the ones with nests on our own home turf. The baby bird touching is a myth, like hoop snakes rolling about lol!

    After thinking on it more writing here I would have saved the baby bird that day. One sad tv docu had a group following a lion cub that had gotten separated from the pride. Every day grew harder for the folks as to what to do...or not do.

    Right in line with you, Beth, thank you. There are exceptions to every rule...even in nature, and especially when mr raven makes it up close and personal next to one's abode.:)

    Well hello, Ed! Yes it does have to rule and we both have seen things in nature that were hard to watch. Gotta be honest here and say if i'd made it out a bit sooner Mr Raven would have found lunch somewhere else that day...right or wrong.

    Hi there ,Sheila. It's god awful to see the baby birds or mammals of nature fall to predators and it's in most of us to protect innocence so it sure is understandable to feel where your coming from. Do the same thing unless 4 something as u mention.

    Thanks Penny, what you write and feel on the question is certainly true. But you know we humans can be pulled in different directions at times:)
