Baby Eaglet in its Nest

 

A baby eaglet in its nest
Has very hungry mouth to feed
To keep it at its healthy best.
A baby eaglet in its nest
Allows its parent little rest,
Because of youth’s voracious need.
A baby eaglet in its nest
Has very hungry mouth to feed.

A baby eaglet‘s huge sharp beak
Is always open for some food,
Or begging with a squawk or shriek.
A baby eaglet‘s huge sharp beak
Can rend the morsels that they seek
As mother feeds her hungry brood.
A baby eaglet‘s huge sharp beak
Is always open for some food.

A baby eaglet’s infant head
Is covered with a fluffy fuzz –
An eagle feature that’s been bred.
A baby eaglet’s infant head
Is made for keeping eagles fed.
That’s what a hungry eagle does.
A baby eaglet’s infant head
Is covered with a fluffy fuzz.

This youngster’s full of helplessness
Until the eaglet learns to fly –
A day of joy and happiness.
This youngster’s full of helplessness
While parents offer tenderness
For their fluffy, fuzzy little guy.
This youngster’s full of helplessness
Until the eaglet learns to fly.

Author Notes:

Baby eaglets have a large fuzzy head that is required to hold up that massive beak. They eventually grow into it. The body and head is inttially covered in fuzz rather than feathers.
