The Birds sit outside their window and the class of children become giddy. It's just a hole in the brick wall, really, how many birds can fit in there? It's that small, but it's enough to thrill the children and have big discussions about these birds that live outside their window.
Where could have the birds gone?
They're too high and we can't reach them.
I can't reach them! As one boy hangs onto the window's ledge.
Perhaps they went to find some food? I ask one of the boys. His eyes widen and I can see he's trying to imagine The Birds out gathering their breakfast. They'll be back I say. That seems to calm his fears of not seeing The Birds again.
