Wrens, Robbins, Eckermann and Goethe

leave a comment »

In 1827, Eckermann told Goethe about a robin mother who welcomed a pair of wren fledglings into the nest and fed them alongside her own chicks. ¬†Goethe responded, “If it be true that this feeding of a stranger goes through all Nature as something having the character of a general law – then many an enigma would be solved.”
