Need a Card for Mother's Day?

Now there's a mother's love for you: The way this tiny reed warbler struggles to keep up with the demands of the huge cuckoo chick got me thinking about parenthood in general.Cuckoo chicks trill in such a way that they sound like a whole nest of hungry chicks which is part of the reason why their hosts work so hard to keep them fed. Don't forget to thank your mum for all her hard work this Sunday!
