It’s obvious that the baby was responding to his/her mother’s call but I was aghast when it jumped off that mountain. HOW is it going to land without dying? Then when it bounced off the mountain again and again I assumed it was fatally injured. To see that small, seemingly-frail bird simply shake its head and start moving was wonderful but shocking. How did it survive that fall? That mountain top is at 400 feet which is roughly equal to 40 stories! Most human bodies don’t survive a four story fall, at least not without devastating injuries.
We can only detect Mother Nature’s hand in this miracle and it’s wonderful that three of the chicks were saved although I feel compassion for the two that were not. Don’t we live in an amazing world?
