Name Calling - Lincoln Park Zoo

A hadada ibis, I do
Like to people watch a whole lot
Here at home in Lincoln Park Zoo.
Some folks are fun to watch, some not.
Some people that I watch may hear
Me make my call of "ha-da-da."
And thus my name it does appear
Was heard and folks then thought, "Ah hah! "
I've heard that some folks think my call
Is an omen both good and bad.
And so amused I do watch all
For reactions my calls have had.

And so when you're around this bird,
I'll watch you as I give the word.

    Lovely poem about a lovely bird. I am also fascinated by a bird that chirps every morning. I want to find its name but i cant even see it up the tree. It sings " You are pure evil, you are pue evil, you are pure evil" . I m sure its my neighbour it means! I wanna do a poem but i cant see the birdie. Lovely poem
