Cow Birds in the Bible? Yes...

 I've been enjoying watching juvenile birds this spring!

Some mockingbird babies have been frequent visitors.

Looking out my kitchen window,
I thought at first I only had one,
but then saw two together,
...and then surprisingly enough, a third one!

They were very curious...

...seemed to enjoy climbing on my lawn furniture...

...And came close enough that they seemed to watch me
when I was by the kitchen window.

But imagine what a surprise it would have been
if their mother had found this bird in that batch of babies.

I found it interesting what God had to say about "Cowbirds"
in the Book of Jeremiah 17:11 via The Message Translation:
"Like a cowbird that cheats by laying its eggs
in another bird's nest
Is the person who gets rich by cheating.
When the eggs hatch,
the deceit is exposed..."

The verses just above this are featured in today's Rock4Today,
Are you curious what they say?
