The baby giggled happily, trying to draw his mother’s attention to himself. However, it did little good. His mother’s gaze was glued to the strange-looking device with a screen. He glanced outside the window and saw a pigeon’s nest. A pigeon was slowly emerging from a newly hatched egg. It was as ugly as a pigeon could ever be, and yet, the mother pigeon was showering the baby with love and attention.
