Question:

Why do mother birds reject their young?

Answer:

Birds don't abandon their young in response to human touch as we have always heard, but they will abandon [their offspring and their nest] in response to disturbance," explains biologist Thomas E. Martin. If a nest is disturbed they fear a predator.
