A Trip To the Zoo

The sign read, ZOO. Callie perched on a tree just outside the entrance. She flew over the sign and landed in front of the flamingos. She lifted her wing and looked at its blue color, then she looked at the pinkish-orange color of the flamingo feathers. They were pretty, but she liked her blue feathers better.

She flew over to the orangutans. They were hairy and brown and were fun to watch. The black and white pandas were sitting quietly, nibbling on bamboo as she arrived. Neither of them were very colorful. She saw some brownish-gray elephants. She liked their long trunks. She thought she was a much prettier color than they were.

She then flew over to the reptile building and looked at all the snakes and lizards. She was a little bit afraid. Snakes and lizards eat blue jays sometimes. She was glad they were behind glass.

Before she left, she stopped to see one last thing, the parrots. They were bright green, red, yellow, and purple, and their beaks were colorful too. She looked at their feathers, then at her own. She still liked her blue ones the most. After that, she flew home to her nest, leaving all the zoo noises behind her.
