It’s ᴅɪffɪᴄᴜʟᴛ for any animal to be born into the world, but it’s even more ᴅɪffɪᴄᴜʟᴛ for birds. To breach the shell, the chicks must use all of their might. They are already weary, immobile, and ʙʟɪɴᴅ when they are born. This is just the ʙᴇɢinning, beᴄᴀᴜsᴇ just one chick out of 10 wɪʟʟ make it.
Insects are ᴇᴀᴛᴇɴ by birds. As long as the ants don’t get involved, this food chain works properly. Once the ants get involved, food becomes a ᴘʀᴇᴅᴀᴛᴏʀ. Some ant species don’t mind ᴇᴀᴛing other people’s mᴇᴀᴛ, but none of them behave like red fɪʀᴇ ants. Can you imagine what certain nomadic tribes’ ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋs look like? They’re like ʜᴜʀʀɪᴄᴀɴᴇ ants, however instead of crawling into the nest to locate food among the ʀᴜʙbish and then quietly leaving, they’re waiting for the chicks to hatch since they’re the most delicious snack the egg yolk attracts workers.
Of course, this is amusing, but not to the chicks. Red fɪʀᴇ ants can practically ᴇᴀᴛ them alive beᴄᴀᴜsᴇ they are fragile and ʟᴀᴄᴋ the protection of fᴇᴀᴛhers. In areas where there are a lot of fɪʀᴇ ants and trees aren’t sprayed with ᴘᴇsᴛicides, it’s the ᴡᴏʀsᴛ birthday ever. Consider becoming an ant colony’s food 22 percent of the time. This does not include ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜs from other ᴄᴀᴜsᴇs, as young birds do not require much to ʟᴇᴀᴠᴇ the game. Too cold, too hot, too humid, insufficient food, or perhaps the mother inadvertently ɪɴjᴜʀᴇᴅ them with her back. In a nutshell, there are numerous options, as well as ants.
Why do ants consume mᴇᴀᴛ at all? They’re tiny, yet interestingly enough, their jaws are big enough to ʙɪᴛᴇ it off. It would take even less time for an ɪɴᴠᴀsɪᴠᴇ species to take over a world since when you take over a planet. Is this to say that unless they have a few trained fʟɪᴇs nearby, the chicks are ᴅᴏᴏᴍed? They must be able to ᴇsᴄᴀᴘᴇ the nest in some way. There aren’t any ʙᴀʀʀɪᴇʀs. It’s just a matter of jumping over the edge, and it’s not easy.
Another ɪssᴜᴇ is that while the nest appears to be cozy and safe, it is usually a confined, parasite-ɪɴfᴇsᴛᴇᴅ environment where you don’t want to be at all. To safeguard their offspring, they modify their living environment and ᴀᴠᴏɪᴅ parasites. They should make the nests as duʀᴀʙle as possible from the start.
