The feelings for parents with Empty nest syndrome are feeling lonely, unhappy, and/or worrisome. (Feldman, 2014.p.519). Many parents feel some great adjustments must take place in order to properly cope with this stage of family life. According to (Feldman, 2014), women, especially those who have remained home as homemakers experience these feelings and often find themselves within Empty Nest Syndrome. Research shows that fathers deal with this time of life a little differently. One report showed fathers who's children had recently left home showed them “either happy or neutral about this departure.”(Feldman, 2014). Most of those showing signs of real struggle with empty nest syndrome are the mothers. Research suggests that this might be due to the mothers being more involved throughout the childrearing ages.(Feldman, 2014). Not everyone in the stage of the ‘empty nest’ show feelings of…

    Dziadzio, Smith, Chandler, and Castleberry (2016) did a research on how the location of the gopher nest could affect its survival. They found that nests that were away from the burrow in sandy areas survived more than the ones in burrow aprons. They also learned that the nests that were in places that burned up during the research had a very low survival (Dziadzio et al., 2016). Many research studies are being done to find ways to change the environment to help prevent the extinction of the…

    The behavior of nest sanitation includes the removal of eggshells, fecal sacs, non-viable hatchlings, and undigested food (Ibáñez-Álamo, Ruiz-Raya, Roncalli, & Soler, 2014). This costly expense is not found in every species, and perhaps has adapted in part to its reproductive advantage (Tinbergen, 1963). Many studies have tested to see if removal of excrements decreases parasites and predators. These hypotheses have received mixed support between studies on the same species as well as between…
