Another little bird has come my way. This one is perched - and for a very good reason. She explained to me that her branch of the Flutterby's was never meant to fly. Hmmm a non-flying bird. But then I noticed how small her wings are so perhaps therein lies the answer.
Happily her 'musical wings' must mean that she can sing. However, I have never heard
her do that either. Does she sing in the middle of the night when no one is around? Does she long to fly as other Flutterby's are prone to do? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
"The reason birds can fly and we can't is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings." - J.M. Barrie
