What a great choice of subjects to teach "Love one another" Thanks for a very entertaining story. I have always thought Cowbirds beautiful.
Loved it. Such deep lessons in this light hearted tale. I wasn't too excited at first, but you kept drawing me in and in until you had my full attention. Nice voice, good sense of humor, great idea, super message, and fun to read.

This needs a cover, illustrations and marketing. It would be a great children's book.
You have a wonderful analogy wrapped up cleverly in your creative story.

This is very cute. A biblical theme in a bird-like setting. Had the alien bird been a moorhen you might well have called him Moses! God bless.
I love this delightful tale.I could easily see this as a picture book.

I'd never heard of cowbirds, so I looked them up. The mother, after laying her egg in a nest, may stick around and watch if the foster mom boots the guest egg out, the cowbird will often destroy the foster mom's eggs.

Add this tidbit and you could really make some great points about life in a children's book.

I really hope you consider it, if I can help I will. This is a story many parents and kids alike need to hear. Plus it would be the book that many kids would beg to hear over and over.
