What does the little birdie say
In her nest at the peep of day?
Let me fly, says little birdie,
Mother, let me fly away.
Birdie, rest a little longer,
‘Til the little wings are stronger,
So she rests a little longer,
Then she finally flies away.
This has been happening at our house! The bird, a Junco, looks to be a bit beaten up – it is still flying around my deck and eating the birdseed I put out for it. That goes on for many fifteen minutes, then she flys down and sits in a cardboard box right outside the patio door. So, being a crazy bird lover, I put a blanket in the box when it flew off for a spell. The bird, let’s see, I’ll call it “Junky” since it is a Junco, pecked at the blanket so it was tight against the edges, fluffed up its feathers, sat down, and closed its eyes. It’s still there – sleeping. Isn’t nature amazing . . .
