The Starlings and the peanut

I was having my coffee this morning and I heard quite a commotion outside. I had put some peanuts out as a treat for the birds. A mother starling was trying, repeatedly, to feed one to her two babies. The two little ones were screaming for the peanut and the poor mom tried many, many times to shove the peanut into their open beaks. She finally gave up and walked off and ate it herself. It’s hard being little. And frustrating to be a parent. LOL
