Bitsy and the Flying Lesson

“Good morning Midge,” said Jenny as she flew down and landed on the bench.
“Hi Jenny,” said Midge. “Bitsy has been waiting for you and is really excited about learning to fly.”
“Hi momma,” smiled Bitsy.
“Hi Bitsy,” smiled Jenny. “Are you ready to learn to fly?”
“Oh yes,” said Bitsy. “I'm so excited.”
“What happened to you?” asked Jenny. “When I went back to the nest with some food, you were gone. I looked every where for you and couldn't find you.”
“I fell out of the nest,” said Bitsy.”
“How?” asked Jenny.
“I was standing on the edge of the nest and a big wind came and I fell out,” said Bitsy.

Gabby Comes to Help

   “Hey guys!” greeted Gabby as he flew down from the tree and landed on the table. “What are you guys doing?”
“Hi Gabby,” smiled Midge. “We are talking with Bitsy.”
“Who is Bitsy?” asked Gabby.
“This is Bitsy,” said Booker-T pointing to the tiny bird sitting on the cloth near the bench.
Gabby flew over to the bench and landed on the seat. “Well, well,” smiled Gabby. “You are Bitsy?”
“Yes,” said Bitsy. “Can you help me? Midge said you could help me.”
“Help you do what?” asked Gabby.
“I can't find my mother,” sighed Bitsy. “Midge carried me here to her house and said you could help.”
“That sounds like Midge,” smiled Gabby. “She is always there to help someone.”
“We all want to help you if we can,” said Jake.
“Where did you see your mother last?” asked Gabby.

The Little Baby

 Midge and Booker-T walked along the sidewalk on their way to Jake's house. Midge looked over toward the little cafe and saw something laying in the grass.
“Wait Booker-T,” said Midge. “What is that laying over there?”
“I don't know,” said Booker-T. “Lets go see.”
They walked across the street and found a baby bird laying in the grass.
“Hi little one,” said Midge. “Why are you laying here on the ground?”
“Please don't hurt me,” cried the little bird.
“It's okay little one,” said Midge. “We aren't going to hurt you. We want to help you if we can.”
“What happened?” asked Booker-T. Are you okay?”

Walking in the Rain

 “Raindrops keep falling on my head,” sang Midge as she and Booker-T strolled along the sidewalk splashing through the puddles on the sidewalk.
“They keep falling,” added Booker-T. “Why are we walking in the rain?”
“Because we are going to Jake's house,” said Midge. “And it's raining.”
“Maybe we should have stayed home inside the house today,” suggested Booker-T.
“Rain rain go away,” sang Midge. “Come again another day.”
“I'm ready for some sunshine,” sighed Booker-T. “This is the fourth day of rain.”
“Hey Jake!” called Midge as her and Booker-T hurried through the gate. “Where are you?”
“Hey you two,” said Jake as he sat up in the swing. “Did you come in an ark?'
“No,” said Midge shaking her head. “What is an ark?”
