Robby's Quest Ocean Bound, Written by DC Rush and Illustrated by Daniela Frongia. Ricky stood, stretched his legs, and said to the birds around him, “Arizona weather sure is beautiful this time of year.” Everyone at the meeting agreed because the weather was nearly perfect. The temperature was almost 100 degrees, but it actually seemed cooler. Lake Pleasant was gorgeous. The boats were motoring up and down, folks were fishing and swimming and, as usual, the entire flock was munching breadcrumbs and seed. The topic of discussion for the day was the weather. Robby mentioned that although the weather was very nice, the temperature was rising by the day. Ricky had also noticed that over the past few weeks it was warming up rather quickly. The Mourning Doves agreed with Ricky’s assessment about the warming trend. Benny stood up, shook his feathers and said, “Maybe we need to fly back to the northeast. Maybe we need to be snow birds.” “What’s a snow bird?” asked Joy. Benny responded, “A snow bird is a bird that flies south for the winter and returns to the north for the summer. In our case we traveled southwest to follow the food supply, so we would need to fly northeast to return home to our maple tree.” Everyone’s eyes lit up. “Did someone say maple tree?” yelled Jill. Jill was especially excited because she really loved bathing in the birdbath beneath that particular maple tree. Robby spoke again, “I’m not sure how hot the temperature will be getting in the southwest but we don’t do very well in a hot climate. If the weather gets much hotter we’re going to regret staying here.” Benny began pacing back and forth. “We almost didn’t survive the trip down here,” he said. “I have concerns about finding our way back home. We would probably need to fly east until we cross into Florida and then north back to Ohio. This trip would take several weeks and we may never make it.
