One Dark Bird
Illustrator: Frann Preston-Gannon
One dark bird is perched up high, with a view of the town and a taste of the sky. Then she’s joined by two more, then three, then four. Before long, there are hundreds of starlings dancing across the sky—and avoiding a hunting hawk with one of the most spectacular tricks in the animal kingdom. Then, when night comes, the starlings begin to depart, until finally there is just one dark bird perched way up high, with a view of the town and a taste of the sky.
Note about starlings. Full-color illustrations were rendered using a mixture of digital and hand-drawn techniques.
