The morning (mourning) alarm

The new baby on the front porch with it's quite dead sibling. This thing cries at 8am sharp. Its got to be saying get this dead body out of here! It no longer sits in the nest of death. I feel for it but can't do anything to make its situation better. I scared this little bird seconds after i took this picture and it flew out of the nest and onto the lawn. It didn't do a very good job either. I felt terrible but the next moring it was back with the corpse begging for food from the mama. The parent is quite happy to feed this bird right next to the dead one. It's kind of horrible but ...not... at the same time.

Um, and there is no way for you to get rid of this dead little birdy?

Sheesh man, I have such soft spot for animals. I feel sorry for them sometimes.

I dont want to disturb the nest. I'm afraid the mother would stop feeding the survivor if she notices the nest has been disturbed
