Lasiodora parahybana, a Brachypelma vagan and a ball python. All of which get handled when not cranky. Like any pet, pets need attention, even venomous ones with near 1" fangs. Seems sometimes the big girl wants to go for a cruise with daddy and other times seems quite content to hang out and chill on her enrichment while sucking down some noms. I'm not debating the ethics of pets bc its a circular argument that has no end. But all pets need attention not just left to their own devices to be ignored until its time to feed the hungry buggers. My argument was helping a defenseless baby potentially abandoned by the momma. Humans can step in i believe when nature drops the ball and i think should step in when we can but only after its totally sure nothing else can be done. that was my point.

I really didn't know where to post this. Sorry mods. I really need help from someone who is educated about birds.
There is a family of birds that nests outside my house every season. But this time there is a baby bird in the nest who is chirping non stop 24 hours a day. Not in spurts. I'm talking peep, peep, peep, peep...at least 4 times a second, ALL.....DAY.
I don't know if it's normal. I've never heard this kind of commotion before from their nests. And I'm worried something is wrong. The little bird sounds like it would be exhausted from chirping, yet he can't stop.
I don't want to check the nest and disrupt the flow and make his Mom possibly reject him. But it's getting sad.
Why is he doing this? Does it mean anything bad? Did his Mom abandon him??
