I thought of a new idea. A prompt. A new prompt with a bird! They don't have a due date and such. It can be a poem, a short story or whatever you want it to be, just as long as it involves that certain bird. They don't even have to be in order. If you have any suggestions, feel free to reply. If you don't know what a bird looks like, feel free to look it up!
