Early Birds

People often say, “The Early Bird gets the worm”. However, I see several problems with this statement.
First, is there really only one worm that is available early?
Second, how early do you have to be to get that worm?  If you are too early, it’s just dark and then you don’t see the worm at all.
Next, what about wheat, or seed, or corn? I often prefer them to worms. What if I just wait for daylight and then forage for kernels of grain?
Finally, let’s say I’m not really a morning person (in this scenario, a morning bird) and I prefer to start my day later…can’t there be worms in the afternoon when all the Early Birds have returned to the coop?I’m just trying to think outside the egg carton.
