Birds in the City

826DC "The Thing with Feathers" Summer Workshop, 2018

We hear birds in the city.
A bird chirps when singing a song.
When birds chirp, it is harmony.
El sonido de los pájaros es el sonido de la naturaleza.

Birds look beautiful because of their feathers.
Soft and glossy feathers, like a fuzzy blanket or like a frozen sky.
A house sparrow is like a Hershey’s chocolate, rough and bumpy.

Birds smell like the shallow water. Some smell like trash. Others smell wild.

Birds sound like chirping.
También hay diferentes tipos de pájaros con diferentes colores del arcoíris.
A bird caught its food and into the nest it flew.

The bird eats the crunchy cicada shell.
When birds eat cicadas, they taste crunchy.
Cicadas taste like chicken.

Do birds work at Five Below?

A sparrow’s life is rough and bumpy like Hershey’s chocolate.
For birds, cicadas taste like chicken.

Flying through the sky.

Do birds eat shoes?
Climate change affects how and where birds migrate.
A parakeet is as colorful as summer.
Do birds wear clothes?

On a des oiseux dans la ville.
