How the birds got their colours

Callum and Poppy

Long,long ago in the dreamtime when everything was being created and when the desert was endless and bare, there lived a little colourless bird. All the birds were black in colour,even the parrots.There did not have any bright or fancy colours which would cover their bodies they were all black.For a long, long time, the birds were happy until one day...

One day, a little bird was looking for grub.He flew closer to a sharp branch.Then as the beautiful black bird was getting close to the branch he landed on the brach and hurt his foot really badly."Help,help !" he cried but nobody came.His foot started to swell a little.He needed somone to help him because he was feeling very, very sick.
