Robins

So, I spent  probably six hours yesterday on a post wherein I discovered a counterintuitive but illuminating link between ideas in two articles I had read that morning.  By the time the sun went down and it still wasn’t done, I was ready to admit that the link was as follows:  they were both interesting.  And that was it.

So here instead is an old one about Robins.

    Robins cannot protect their nests against cats by pecking. They leave the nest when disturbed asap to divert the predator’s attention. The cat will rather try to pursue a moving prey than look for a nest of which she doesn’t know that it exists. So what the Robin mother does is rather heroic: She tries to draw the predator’s attention to herself.
