The Amazing Squirrel-Bird!

Once upon a time, a cute cuddly squirrel –

Got way to close to a bird feeder… so the birds tackled him and wrapped him in wire –

And left the squirrel this way overnight.  In the morning, the birds were surprised to find the squirrel had transformed into an unusual bird –

It still had the shape of the squirrel but it’s coat had changed colors!

And it now had a beautiful orange beak!

As the birds examined this strange looking bird, they noticed the feather at the top of its head –

“Ah-hah!”  Exclaimed the birds in unison, “This is a Dazzler Bird!”

It is a very rare squirrel-bird that lives high up in the trees.

The Dazzler Bird is seen by very few people.  You have been given this exceptional sighting as a symbol of goodwill.  May it give you a smile on your lips and a skip in your step as you go about your day!

The End – or is it just the beginning?
