Parakeet

by Julia
(Newport RI USA )

I was walking on the beach with my friends on my birthday and we got to the end and in the bushes I found a gorgeous yellow bird. I have always been amazed by birds so I sprinted over as fast as I could. I screamed look at the parakeet! My friends said I was an idiot and that it wasn't but they weren't as close as I was so I argued with them all night that it was a parakeet. This carried on to the following day where I continued to argue with them. Now I am sitting on the same beach hiding in shame behind my marshals sunglasses because what I saw was an American goldfinch...I am disappointed in my ignorance but happy I found this page so I can stop bothering my friends with my bird stories and tel them on this site to people who will appreciate it and me!!!
