The Happy Crane Bird
The crane bird was on the final lap of its migration route. She landed in a new place.
It was a long flight from a faraway place, thousands of miles away. The bird was too tired after the long nonstop flight. The bird wanted was to have some food and take some rest.
She went to the nearby pond, gulped some small fish in the pond. “Wow, it tastes great,” The new place was very different from the place the migratory bird flew from during winter.
“Hello there, you seem new here,” a cow grazing in the meadow greeted the bird.
“Yes, I am new here. This place is so different than the place where I come from. Will you please introduce me to other animals and birds here and make me feel at home?” the crane bird requested the cow.
“Of course, it’s my pleasure to do so,” said the cow. A squirrel came that way. “Hey, Mr. Squirrel, meet Ms. Crane, who is very new here, and I would like to introduce her to you,” said the cow. The squirrel, who was busy running here and there collecting Beatle nuts, stopped his job for a while for a chit-chat with the crane bird.
Next came a cat. The cat was going for fishing activity in the nearby lake. “Hey, Mr. Cat, meet Ms. Crane, who is from a faraway place,” said the cow. The cat also spent some time chatting with the cow and the crane.
The cow introduced all animals to the crane bird. The crane bird felt home at last because all animals were friendly with the bird.
“Now I am going to stay with you all,” said the bird. “You are most welcome,” said the other birds and animals. “I will never leave this place. It’s so good to be here with so many friends,” the bird said.
