Yeah i dont think that's true. Probably some Tumblr BULLSHIT again.

While this sounds like an interesting theory, I'm gonna go ahead and question it.

Wouldn't it be more beneficial for the child to cry when seeing what it perceives to be a dangerous predator, so its caretaker will come and get it (thus negating the threat, since obviously a bird of prey isn't going to swoop down and take it from the arms of its much larger mother)? And since humans have never been very precocious infants, it's not like they can be left unsupervised out in the open for a prolonged period of time, so it's mother it's probably pretty close by at any given time.

Also, at the point in their development when this would be most crucial, the child wouldn't be able to see the bird anyway. Infants can only see 8-15 inches away; and by the time the hawk is that close, let's face it, baby's fucked. A baby can't even recognize the shape of another person from across the room until it's 8 months old. It's not going to be able to discern a circling bird above them from a shit ton of other extremely fuzzy, hard-to-see stimuli.

However, I would love to be proven wrong if anyone has an article or something that discusses this, because, like I said, it's an entertaining thought.

I'm fucking sick of tumblr posts. This wasn't even funny, interesting or true.

Yes, I am "so fucking done", before any comical geniuses choose to reply.

Evolutionary? Did this trait evolve because we leave our babies in the middle of the sahara for 3 days before we feed them or some shit? Damn you have to be gullible to believe this garbage.
