The Mourning Bird Visit

by Carmen
(Baltimore, MD)

I was surprised to see a mourning bird on my balcony outside of my screen door sitting on a table. When I open the door he flew to the railing and sat. When I looked out on to my balcony he was sitting in the sun on the balcony's floor, I gave the bird pieces of bread thinking that he was hungry. Later in the day as it was getting dark the bird was gone. To my surprise the next morning the bird was there in the same spot and I gave him some more bread of course he had visitors who came to help eat his bread, when I open the door they flew away but he did not fly away. I pray that this means good luck and not something dreadful as the stories I have heard.
