Wouldn’t Any Mother Do That?

Posted on June 2, 2009. Filed under: Mommy Moments | Tags: , |



A british amateur wildlife photog caught this picture of a thrush family who definitely built their nest at the corner of wrong time wrong place.  When the mother realized the oncoming water from the gutter would wash the next down the drainspout, she puffed her body up to three times it’s normal size to block the flow of water.  Daddy was left to feed the kids.


Now I ask you – wouldn’t you do that for your kids???   Oh wait – you already did when you were pregnant!

A lovely picture, just goes to show how strong maternal instincts are whatever the species!

If I’m guessing correctly. this bird family was from your ‘neck of the woods’ — meaning across the pond!

That is so cute:) Motherly instinct happens no matter if you are human or animal, it is wonderful.

Absolutely agree – I loved the story so much I had to share!
