I took this picture during the summer of a fledgling cardinal and every time I look at it, I laugh. There’s something about his expression that cracks me up. He is in the process of molting, which is why he’s missing a few feathers here and there.
He may not look it, but this is one smart bird, which leads me to your challenge for today.
Take the Challenge
Let’s pretend that our little cardinal is fluent in languages. Let’s say in addition to his native language, he also speaks English and speaks much better than any parrot:~)
So, take another look at him and then answer this challenge question: What do you think he’s going to say next?
Here are some other questions you can consider answering in addition to the challenge question or in place of it.
- What’s secret is he about to tell?
- What’s your favorite type of bird and I mean the ones that fly. Oops, did I really say that:~)
- What question did you really want to answer that I didn’t include? Go for it! Write your own question and answer it in the comment box.
