Are You a Wise Bird?

A shiny black bird came to my window. Soon its mate appeared. Looking hurriedly in my bird book, I discovered they were cowbirds. They have an unusual habit. They do not build nests of their own but always lay their eggs in nests of other birds.

How like mortal belief, I thought. It has no abode of its own and so is always presenting its falsities in any consciousness that will receive them.
