MY VIEW #42 - Birds
Now back to birds, "My View" for today. Parrots are one of the brightly coloured birds, and also peacocks, and both have coarse, screechy voices. Similar too, though less noisy, are parakeets (budgies.) These all seem to be branches of the same family. Some of my favourite birds are: whooping cranes, owls, robins, swans, bluebirds, juncos, meadowlarks, sparrow, loons, hell-divers, cranes and sapsuckers. There are hundreds more you too could name.
Some other things are classed as "birds," not the winged variety. here are a couple of them: chicks (what boys call pretty young girls) and jail-birds. The only thing these two groups have in common is they all have two legs.
So this is it for today. Was it worth the effort?
I had never thought of when I remember first noticing a bird. I still can't think when that might have been, but I do recall a childhood friend who had a canary that sang endlessly.
