Emily's Bluebird image 6

With a boost from her mother, Emily put the chick on a small branch, out of reach of cats. As soon as they backed away, the hungry little bird began peeping. Emily's mother explained that chicks peep so their parents can keep track of them. Sure enough, an adult bluebird arrived a minute later with a juicy caterpillar, and poked it into the chick's mouth. Yum!
