Amother hen is always very concerned about the protection of her chicks when she takes them around to teach them how to scratch and search for food. Very frequently, she will make sure that her little ones are not far from her, and will call them to her side. She knows that her little chicks are very vulnerable to predators, and will always remain on very high alert to detect any danger in the surroundings. As soon as she senses some kind of danger from predators, she will frantically let out a loud call to her chicks, which will then make an instantaneous dash towards her for safety...

The eagle builds its nest on very high mountain peaks or at the top of the tallest trees. It lays its eggs and brings up the young ones in places that are inaccessible to man. The Lord asked His servant Job to consider whether it is a man like Job or God who gives the instinct to the eagle to make its nest so high up.

“Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high? She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place...

Dove: Symbol of Purity and Gentleness Print E-mail

The Bible speaks of three different kinds of doves – pigeon, dove and turtledove. The turtledoves are migratory birds that “observe the time of their coming” (Jeremiah 8:7). The Hebrew word for “dove” literally means “mourner”, hence the common expression to “mourn as a dove” (Isaiah 38:14; 59:11; Nahum 2:7). Doves found in the wild build their nests in the clefts of rocks, but the domesticated ones live in “dovecots” or the pigeonholes prepared for them in houses (Song 2:14; Jeremiah 48:28; Isaiah 60:8).

In the flood story of Genesis 6-8, Noah used the doves to see whether the flood was receding. Noah released three doves in seven-day intervals (Genesis 8:8-12). The first dove returned to Noah in the ark because the water had not receded for it to find a place of rest...

Ravens were noted for their voracious hunger for meat. They would attack little lambs or weak animals in the valley, and would pick out the eyes of their victims...
