Consequences

These chicks became collateral damage the moment their mom was unable to return to them.

You hope for their sake that they died quickly, but you know in the back of your mind that this probably wasn’t the case. Starving to death is not something that happens expeditiously.

There are no fairy godmothers, child services, disability cheques, there are no safety nets in the wild. Zero. If mom doesn’t make it home her babies starve, if she can’t find food, her and her babies go hungry.

There’s so many things that can go wrong it’s amazing that anything goes right, and that’s what makes it so very interesting to observe.

Yes, this photo is sad, but it perfectly illustrates the stakes and the ripple effect that failure has on these fragile family units.
