Feathered Friend


West Coast

Charlotte, 12

Sun shinning, yellow belly, neatly perching on a kowhai tree branch,
searching for sandflies in the frosty winter leaves.
It's beak is as black as the night sky and it's feathers are as white as snow.
Chirping cheekily and swooping sillily.
Darting from tree to tree, it's beautiful fan like feathers fluttering funnily.
