New To The Nest - Lincoln Park Zoo - Poem by Ima Ryma

A happy hatching has occurred,
An Inca tern chick comes brand new.
The species, an endangered bird,
Can be seen at Lincoln Park Zoo.
When fully grown the bird will be
A sight with lots of dash and flash,
Sporting red beak and feet to see,
And Salvador Dali mustache.
Both parents, Mom and Dad, do share
In parenting their new offspring,
Both taking turns providing care,
Keeping their new chick under wing.

Come to the Bird House in Free Flight,
Look around for the nest to sight.

    A wonderful and unique write that
    gives emphasis to care and protection of animals
    specially the endangered.
    Beautifully crafted and well executed.
