March 3rd, 2019 : Finches Maws

Finch - small to medium-sized passerine birds in the family Fringillidae.
Some people keep them as pets

Maw Ė INFORMAL - the mouth or gullet of a greedy person.
Iím sure youíve seen pictures/video of baby birds begging to be fed when a parent shows up with chow.

Iíve often wondered how the parent bird chooses which baby to feed. Finch babies are really tiny, as a grown finch averages only 4 inches.
So first how to they choose? ďNo Larry you had the last grub, give Vern a chanceĒ. Nah, canít be they all look alike. But Finches cheat.

Maybe the can tell which is which, they certainly can tell if somebody slipped a cowbird in there.

Everything is interesting... look closer.
