Default Re: I'm with Rick

Paul, In see your point & it is well taken. However at my age & very limited education, scientific names are for the most part useless. The people I have to associate with haven't a clue about scientific names. If I asked most anyone I know if they ever killed a ursus horribilis they would most likely think I had lost my mind. If I asked if they ever killed a grizzly bear they would know what I am talking about. .........Most ground nesting birds have large clutches of eggs while tree nesting birds have fewer. My common sense tells me that's because ground nesting birds have a much higher mortality rate. I highly suspect birds of prey have fewer eggs & young because of the difficulty of providing food for the young. Most all ground nesting birds have to hit the ground running as soon as they hatch & this makes it more difficult for them to survive. Can't find your own food, you're out while tree nesting bird young are fed by their parents usually long after they fledge & have a better chance of survival. .......Paul H
