I used to see birds flying all the time. I would point at them and tell my parents “birdies” (sometimes I could spot them even before my parents would notice them). They were just a few during the winter, but I saw more and more as the weather warmed up. Today I saw lots and lots of birds when we went to a park along the Columbia River. I met my friends over there and we quickly figured out that we were too slow to catch any of the birds. Consequently, we kinda ignored the birds after a while and had fun playing in the park.
