A bird

By: Maria D.
Illinois, Age 11

One sunny day, a bird was happily chirping in a tree until an eagle swooped down and grabbed it. But as soon as a hunter saw this he shot the eagle. The bird got away until the hunter, who had quick hands, grabbed the bird from the air and put him in a cage. The only reason that hunter was in the woods was to find a bird that he could keep in his lonely house. The bird and him. The bird never got away. The hunter eventually got married and had kids. The hunters youngest son Billy let him out of his cage to show his friend when he was 5 years of age. The bird was then old so he thought the hunter would always be there for him so the bird flew away. A few days later the hunter was still looking for him when he saw the bird dead on the ground.
You shouldn't take anything for granted.
