French Birds



If we could understand the language of birds, what would they tell us? 

Would she tell us what it is like to fly, what the world looks like from above?  
Would she tell us what it is like to forage for food, to find shelter from the weather, refuge from predators?  
Would she talk about the places she has visited, the adventures she has had? 
Would she talk about family, and mates, and relationships with other birds? 
Do birds gossip? 
I wonder if this bird knows he is French? That he is at Mt St Michele? 

What would you ask the bird?

  2. I've been told that Motmots say "motmot" but I can't find a translation for it. I wonder if it's French (anne marie?).

      "motmot" en francais would be "wordword". perhaps.

      je ne suis pas francaise; je suis anglaise! :)
