Momma Bird Drops the babies

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
I didn't note it in the last list in perusing it.

I'm looking for the one where the momma bird builds her nest on the island to ensure the babies' survival, and then (in succession) takes each baby back across until she is barely able to carry them, asking "will you take care of me when I'm old?"

And each baby (fearful for it's life) complies and says "Yes!"

And each baby is dropped in the drink in succession.

Until she gets the baby that says, "Hell no, when I'm old, I'll have my *OWN* babies to take care of that will take precedence over you!"

And she takes that one baby to the shore knowing her kind is replenished and dies from exhaustion.

And her kind was replenished.
