Catch a Canary
By Mary Lynn Bushong

1     Jan stared out the window. She watched the birds at the feeder.
2     There were many kinds of birds. Some were very small like purple finches. Some were larger like doves or cardinals.
3     There was a new bird at a feeder. It was yellow. It had black on its wings.
4     "Look, Mom," she said, "it is a new bird. It looks like Fred."
5     Mom came over and looked.
6     "Oh," she said, "it is a wild canary. It does look a little like our canary."
7     They watched the yellow bird a while. Then it flew off.
8     "I like that bird. I wish we could catch it and keep it," said Jan.
9     "That might be nice for us," said Mom. "But it would not be good for the bird. It has grown up being free. It would not like living in a small cage."
10     "What about the ones in the pet store?" asked Jan. "They have many kinds of birds."
