One fresh morning a Robin was gently awoken by a cool breeze, the bird felt great and sprang out of her nest. She swooped down from the high perch at the top of a great oak tree, the gleaming sun warming her feathers as she flew. Almost immediately she noticed a squirming little worm wriggling its way across the forest floor. As smooth and quick as an eagle she dove, easily coming up with her prize.
With a full belly, warm feathers and a good mood the Robin decided to make the day even better by making a stop at the pond. The local frogs were already neck deep and urged her to join them in the water. After a few dives the Robin bid her new frog friends farewell and continued on her day.
Her only plans were to pick up a bundle that was being delivered to her mother and as she began her trek she was stopped by a friendly voice from above. It was the joyful old post-pelican, Georgie, he was smiling and waving her bundle as he flew towards her.
“Georgie, what a pleasant surprise, I was just on my way to meet up with you!”
Georgie chuckled as he gracefully landed next to her, “Don’t I know it, I was already in the area and thought I might run into you and wouldn’t you know it?”
“Here we are. Thank you, Georgie.”
“You’re welcome, ma’am,” Georgie gave his trademark salute, turned took flight, resuming his route. Robin fit the bundle in her backpack and headed towards her mother’s.
Robin arrived to find her mother’s nest was empty; she dropped the package inside and went looking for her. After a quick glide around the tree she came upon her mother on the forest floor and she was gathering nuts.
“Mom, what are you doing?” Robin said landing next to her.
“I accidentally dropped your father’s nuts and I was hoping to get them back into the nest before he returned.”
“Let me help you,”
Through suppressed laughter Robin helped her mother and they retrieved all the dropped items successfully. Her mother was delighted to finally get her bundle, she hugged and thanked Robin and they said their good byes.
“I promise we’ll be over for dinner tomorrow night,” Robin assured her mother.
“Good, and be sure to bring that boy you’ve been seeing, I want to meet him.”
Robin quickly took flight and headed back to her nest, her mother began unpacking and storing the goods from the bundle, both ladies feeling especially clever for things neither of them did intentionally.
