Welcome to Brad's online memory archives.

Brand-new Bird

Almost every morning at school, there is a bird that sits on the railing outside my classroom window. It makes a chirping sound, it’s black, and I saw it eating a grasshopper once. It’s kind of in the middle of the picture below. It was super shy.

I didn’t know what kind of bird it was, so I went looking online. I wish I could find the article that revealed the name of this bird to me, because it described my bird perfectly. It said this black-and-white bird likes to eat bugs, is often close to populated areas, and then even said something about it sitting on railings.

When I saw a picture of it, I knew I had identified the bird. It’s a black phoebe. I know a new kind of bird! Yay!

    Awwww… Hi, Phoebe! You are a children’s story in the making.

    Shy little Phoebe flies to school.
    Sits far from the people – playing it cool.
    Sitting on the railing, munching her bugs,
    Watching the children, wary of hugs.
