Alice,
wow, great metaphor. I definitely have seen all 3 types of parents. I think as a parent, I can actually understand the mockingbird much better than the cowbird because I know that if I believed someone intended MY child harm I would fight them without regard to my own safety! I think physicians/residents/students who don't have their own children probably have a lot harder time relating to the mockingbird style.
By the way, I just signed up for that Cornell Ornithology survey and am hopeful it will be something fun for me and my family to do together.
