If I were a bird, I’d sing a song                         

And fly about the whole day long,                  

And when the night comes, go to rest            

Way up high in my cozy nest.                          

 

In December I remember

In the rain and frosty snow,                                              

  hungry cardinals,                                

            hungry blue jays,                                

            hungry sparrows, 

Here I go!

Here’s a piece of toast I’ve saved you            

From my breakfast, warm and good,

            hurry cardinals,                                   

            hurry blue jays,                                   

            hurry sparrows,                                   

Here’s your food!                                                               

                --Myra Cohn Livingston                                    

 

5 little birds without any home

5 little trees in a row.

Come build your nests,

In our branches tall,

We’ll rock you to and fro.

 

How do they know-

The sparrows and larks-

When it’s time to return

To the meadows and parks.

How do they know-

When fall is still here,

It’s the “thing” to go south

That time of the year.

Do you think that a bird

Is just smart, or instead,

That he carries a calendar

‘Round in his head?

                --Aileen Fisher

 

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree,

Merry, merry king of the bush is he;

Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, Kookaburra,

How gay your life must be.

 

A bird in a nest, laid an egg with care

When the egg hatched, a baby was there.

He ate and he ate, he grew, and he grew.

And then one day, away he flew.

 

I saw a little bird go hop, hop, hop,                                 

I told the little bird to stop, stop, stop,            

I went to the window to say,                                             

“How do you do?”                                             

He wagged his little tail                                      

And away he flew!                                                               .              

                --Traditional                                         

 

My pigeon house I open wide,                         

And set my pigeons free,                   (Fly fingers.)

They fly around on every side,           (Fly fingers to each side.)

And in the highest tree.                      (Fly fingers overhead.)

They come down at evening,             (Slowly bring fingers together.)

They close their eyes and sing.         (Make a pigeon house.)

Coo-coo-coo-coo-coo 

Listen to them sing.                                                            

 

5 Little robins in a tree

Father, Mother, and babies 3

Father caught a bug,

Mother caught a worm.

This one got the bug.

This one got the worm.

And this one said, “Now, it’s my turn!”

 

Up in the royal palm tree,

There lives a mynak bird.

I listened very closely,

And this is what I heard.

*Hui

Some birds like to sing "tweet-tweet."

And some birds like to squawk, "awk-awk."

But a mynah bird, a mynah bird,

Amynah bird just likes to "talk-talk."

*Hui

 

Two little blackbirds sitting on a hill,

One named Jack, the other named Jill.

Fly away, Jack, fly away, Jill.

Come back, Jack, come back, Jill.

Two little blackbirds sitting on a pole,

Jack and Jill, fly high, fly low.

Jack and Jill, fly fast, fly slow.

Jack and Jill sitting on a pole.

Two little blackbirds sitting on a gate,

One named Early, the other named Late.

"Late, Late, where are you!

"You are late, Late!"

 

One pelican dips his bill and catches a fish,

Two peacocks strut and their tail feathers swish.

Three penguins waddle from side to side,

Four owls hoot, and blink their eyes.

Five woodpeckers sound rat-a-tat-tat.

Six turkeys gobble and bob like that.

Seven ducks swim and say quack, quack, quack,

Eight chickens cluck and go scratch, scratch, scratch.

Nine ostriches hide their heads in the sand,

Ten seagulls screech as they soar over land.

Birds in the water, birds in the air,

Birds and more birds everywhere!

 

Five little chickadees peeping at the door,

One flew away, and now there are four.

Four little chickadees sitting in a tree,

One flew away, and now there are three.

Three little chickadees looking at you,

One flew away, and now there are two.

Two little chickadees sitting in the sun,

One flew away, and now there is one.

One little chickadee left all alone,

He flew away, and then there was none.

 

Welcome, welcome, little stranger,

Fear no harm, and fear no danger,

We are glad to see you here,

For you sing, "Sweet Spring is near."

Now the white snow melts away,

Now the flowers blossom gay,

Come dear bird and build your nest

For we love our robin best.

          --Louisa May Alcott

 

Happy, happy little birds,

Singing gaily without words.

Chirping, twittering all the day,

Building nest wherein to lay.

Little eggs that soon will be

Little birds that sing to me.

          --Sarah Jan S. Harrington

 

Birdies flying too and fro,

Flying high and flying low.

Perching in a leafy tree,

Or on earth when worms they see.

Birdies flying east and west,

Then returning to their nest.

          --Gloria T. Delmar
