A very Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms!
Just like all of you moms out there, this Mama Flicker devoted her life to the upbringing of her babies. I'm sure she was beyond exhausted at times, but she didn't stop to rest until all six of her chicks had grown into strong, healthy birds and left the nest. Being a mom can be a tiring, sometimes thankless job, but the world is a softer, gentler place to land because of you...and we love you!
