Wait how does that work? Why does the egg not just.. roll over?

[-] [email protected] 134 points 3 months ago

Searched it up cause I was curious too. It's the white tern, and according to Wikipedia, the egg does roll off frequently. The bird simply doesn't care and lays another egg

What about hatchlings? Do they fall of the tree?

[-] [email protected] 29 points 3 months ago

Yes, Wikipedia mentioned that they fall too. The article mentions that the hatchlings have wide feet to help lessen the chances that they fall

Baby bird: I had to evolve and adapt because my parents don't care about me.

Parents bird: Lol, STFU duck-feet loser
