You’re a nuisance, I declare;

You tease me so, it isn’t fair;

You pounce on me from everywhere,

And seize my hat, and clutch my hair,

And tie my clothes in knots, and tear

The leaves and blossom from the pear;

I wish that I could set a snare

To catch you-but I shouldn’t dare,

For, though you tease me, I declare,

O Wind, if you were never there,

I don’t think I could manage, quite,

To sail my boat or fly my kite.

Sometimes sudden storms arise and drive them far off their course. Often they are blown right out to sea and they drown in the wild waves. Then at night bright lights attract and confuse the birds.

Migrating birds do not fly at their fastest. The migration speed is usually from 48 – 64 kmph and rarely exceeds 80 kmph. They do not generally fly very high; they fly at under 900 meters, but some travellers have been found at greater heights. Some birds make the long journey in easy
