TILLIE THE OSTRICH
Your purchase includes the painting and ready to hang Prose Panel with the following words:
Tillie the Ostrich does not look friendly.
That’s understandable. She’s protecting her nest.
Well it isn’t exactly Tillie’s nest. It is a communal nest.
All of the female ostriches in the flock lay their eggs in a single nest.
All the ostriches (male and female) take turns sitting on the nest
keeping the eggs protected and warm until they hatch.
Even though it is a communal nest, each mother ostrich
knows which of the eggs are hers.
That’s amazing because all the eggs look so much alike!
