A Rainbow of Birds


A Rainbow of Birds

A bluebird stood on a telephone wire that was strung from one wooden pole to the other. His feet were curled around it tightly so he wouldnít fall. He whistled a song, chirping merrily as the puffy white clouds drifted by.

A red robin happened to be flying past and heard the bluebird singing. She flew down to the wire and landed next to the bluebird. He didnít mind. When the bluebird began to sing his song, the robin whistled too. They chirped merrily as the puffy white clouds drifted by.

A yellow canary was sitting in a tree. He had just caught a plump, juicy worm and was about to gobble it down when he heard the bluebird and red robin singing. Dropping the worm, he flew over to the telephone wire and stood next to them. The bluebird and the robin didnít mind. When they began to sing their song, the canary whistled too. They chirped merrily as the puffy white clouds drifted by.

A brown thrasher was eating seed from a bird feeder. He heard the bluebird, red robin, and yellow canary singing. Leaving the seed for other birds, he flew up to the telephone wire and landed next to the other birds. They didnít mind. When they began to sing their song, the thrasher whistled too. They chirped merrily as the puffy white clouds drifted by.

A black crow was cawing as she flew high in the sky, looking for something to eat. She heard the bluebird, red robin, yellow canary, and brown thrasher singing. She thought they sounded very good, so she flapped her wings and landed on the telephone wire next to them. The others didnít mind. When they began to sing their song, the crow whistled too. They chirped merrily as the puffy white clouds drifted by.

A snowy owl was chasing a mouse through a field of dried up cornstalks. His white feathers sparkled in the sunshine. He heard the bluebird, red robin, yellow canary, brown thrasher, and black crow singing. He saw them sitting on the telephone wire. He forgot about the mouse, which ran and hid in an old barn, and flew over to the wire to join the others. They didnít mind. When they began to sing their song, the snowy owl whistled too. They chirped merrily as the puffy white clouds drifted by.

A bright green parrot was practicing her French when she heard the bluebird, red robin, yellow canary, brown thrasher, black crow and white snowy owl singing. She squawked, "Oui, Oui," and flew over to the telephone wire. She landed next to the others. They didnít mind. When they began to sing their song, the parrot whistled too. They chirped merrily as the puffy white clouds drifted by.

A purple parakeet was sitting in his cage by the window. He heard the bluebird, red robin, yellow canary, brown thrasher, black crow, white snowy owl, and bright green parrot singing. He opened the cage door, flew over to the telephone wire, and landed next to the snowy owl. The other birds didnít mind. When they began to sing their song, the parakeet whistled too. They chirped merrily as the puffy white clouds drifted by.

An orange oriole was standing on a sturdy tree branch, nibbling on a ripe cherry. She heard the bluebird, red robin, yellow canary, brown thrasher, black crow, white snowy owl, bright green parrot, and purple parakeet singing. She saw them standing on a telephone wire. She flew over and landed next to them. None of them minded. When they began to sing their song, the oriole whistled too. They chirped merrily as the puffy white clouds drifted by.

A little girl and her mother were going for a walk. The little girl looked up at the telephone wire. "Look, Mummy, a rainbow of birds!" she giggled. The birds didnít mind. The bluebird, red robin, yellow canary, brown thrasher, black crow, white snowy owl, bright green parrot, purple parakeet, and orange oriole chirped merrily as the puffy white clouds drifted by.
