Why do birds in a nest always agree?

Because they don’t want to fall out.

Interesting Fact: The Semipalmated Plover has been seen to swim short distances across small water channels during foraging while on migration. Chicks also swim short distances to follow parents to small islets on shallow lakes. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Semipalmated_Plover/lifehistory )

  1. Swimming bird. Have to think on this. I wonder if he paddles with his feet, or swims with his beak? Is that right? Does a bird have a “beak?” Lol Love your knowledgeable posts!! Thank you for sharing all the uniquely beautiful birds I have never seen or heard of before:) :):)

    • Yea the do have a beak, hahaha. I am not sure what they use to swim but I think they light enough to stay a float and I would think they kick their feet to move. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚
