Does a mother bird know...

her babies can fly before she pushes them out? What happens if they hit the ground?

  • I am not so sure that she pushes them out. From baby birds in the nest that I've observed, when they are big enough and have enough feathers, they hop up on the edge of the nest and flap around on their own.

  • This is how how they teach them, and yes, sometimes they get hurt and a cat catches them and has them for lunch, another lesson to be taught....... Funny you should ask, I had some wood pecker babies recently being taught by mama.....
