The ornithologist straightened his chart out flat on his lap. He had been watching the family of birds for two weeks, with the hope of doing a paper to present at the upcoming CFO in Denver the following month.
It was a difficult job to stay in one place day after day observing the matters of birds in their nests, hoping the tiny eggs would finally pop open and you would be able to catch the perfect moment on camera. Not being the careless type, even this scientist grew weary at times and would nod off, only to discover he had missed the piece of the pie he wanted most.
As most dedicated ornithologists know, they are a few rare takers of those special occasions and revel in the unique capture of them.
