It was a bright sunny morning when Little Birdie broke out of his shell. He was barely an inch long with hardly any feathers.
His nest near the top of a tall tree was in a dense forest. With all the insects and worms that Mama Bird was feeding him, Little Birdie was growing up every day. More and more feathers were starting to cover his body. Weeks went by. One day, when Mama was out looking for food, a strong wind shook the branch that held the nest. Disturbed by the shake, Little Birdie hopped out of the nest into the wide open, landing fortunately on to a nearby branch. Looking around, he noticed how high up he was perched. But he was more curious than afraid when he saw the tall trees and all their branches bending with the wind.
