Latest from Book of Birds: “We Wanted It to Be Something Else”

“What if we see a Bohemian Waxwing?” she said.

“What if we see an Orange Bishop?”

“Wait, what’s that one again?”

“It’s the one from the documentary about things only found in Africa. Remember it has a poofy orange hood like some kinduv holyman, and it’s nest hangs down from the branches like a finely woven coconut?

“A Phoenix. The mythical firebird, who bursts into flames and is reborn out of the ashes.”

“Yesss. Want that one.”
