The Cowbird And The Golden Idol
Here is the part where I usually tell you of the little adventure I had when I took the pictures of this bird. But I can't really do that, now can I? So what do I do when I have no story to tell you? That's easy. I make one up! The most preposterous tale I can think of. So here goes!
It all started after I stole the Golden Idol from the Troll King (He stole it first!). I was running out the back way of their cave with about four hundred angry trolls chasing me. This place happened to be high up on a mountain, and the opening I was headed for only led to the sheer face of the side of the cliff. The only way to go was down or sideways along a long ledge. I obviously chose sideways. I soon found myself standing next to a waterfall, but about halfway down. I was going to have to jump.
I slogged out of the water dejectedly, and headed for home. On my way past several trees I saw this brown-headed cowbird. I quickly pulled out my camera which was surprisingly dry (Hey! This is my story, and I'll tell it as I wish!), and I began taking pictures of this lone cowbird.
I made it home safely from my arduous adventure, but without the idol. I would have shared the pictures with you! Honest! But at least I'm able to share these pictures of this cowbird. It's almost as good. And I guess you can understand why I forgot taking these pictures after going through all of that.
