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.
I do love nature though. Lived in a tent for awhile. Used to get woken up by a great horned owl. It was glorious. There's a good chance that in reality, I'd save the chickadee too. I can't even stand when people squash bugs for no reason.
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.:)
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.
Yes I have watched those where they cannot interfere (according to some unspoken rule) and I just don't see how they do it. Back to your story though; if it was a beautiful snake being eaten by that Raven I would let him have it! lol
Alright now, Jackie, you know i dig snakes so watch it lol
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.
Interesting and unique thoughts on it, Copper Man,...and undoubtedly true.
