I'm trying to fundraise by watching a wild bird grow up but it's a little harder than I thought.
I'm not surprised you're finding it hard. A robin for example, takes 8 days to build it's nest, lays 3 eggs, takes 12 to 14 days to incubate the eggs.
The babies are fed as many as 200 times per day! Feeding starts around 4 am and goes to around 8 pm. Nests are cleaned several times as well. Then its time for the baby birds to learn to fly.
Raising babies is long, hard work! And many birds have two broods.
