Oh, hello.

0:00:060:00:08

I'm Big Bird

0:00:080:00:09

and this is my teddy bear, Radar.

0:00:090:00:12

Are you all comfy and cosy in your nests?

0:00:120:00:14

Oh, great! Then, I'll begin.

0:00:140:00:17

This story is called Birdsong and it's by Ellie Sandall.

0:00:180:00:22

One small bird in a tree.

0:00:240:00:27

Kitcha, kitcha, kee, kee, kee!

0:00:270:00:29

Here's another, come and see.

0:00:300:00:32

Urrah! Urrah! Rah, rah, ree.

0:00:320:00:35

Kitcha, kitcha, kee, kee, kee.

0:00:350:00:37

Two more pairs of landing feet,

0:00:390:00:41

two more friendly birds to greet.

0:00:410:00:44

Chucka, chucka, weet, weet, weet.

0:00:440:00:46

Tchikka, tchikka, tweet, tweet, tweet.

0:00:460:00:49

Urrah! Urrah! Rah, rah, ree.

0:00:490:00:51

Kitcha, kitcha, kee, kee, kee.

0:00:510:00:53

And now, an owl's come into view.

0:00:550:00:58

Too-whit, too-whit, too-whit, too-woo!

0:00:580:01:01

Chucka, chucka, weet, weet, weet.

0:01:010:01:03

Tchikka, tchikka, tweet, tweet, tweet.

0:01:030:01:06

Urrah! Urrah! Rah, rah, ree.

0:01:060:01:09

Kitcha, kitcha, kee, kee, kee.

0:01:090:01:12

Here's a parrot, brown and blue.

0:01:130:01:16

Ru-tu, ru-tu, ru-tu-tu!

0:01:160:01:19

Too-whit, too-whit, too-whit, too-woo!

0:01:190:01:22

Chucka, chucka, weet, weet, weet.

0:01:220:01:24

Tchikka, tchikka, tweet, tweet, tweet.

0:01:240:01:27

Urrah! Urrah! Rah, rah, ree.

0:01:270:01:30

Kitcha, kitcha, kee, kee, kee.

0:01:300:01:33

What a crowd! What a crew!

0:01:330:01:36

What a truly splendid view.

0:01:360:01:38

And what a noise they're making, too.

0:01:380:01:41

Two more birds have made the trip.

0:01:410:01:44

Kiri! Kiri! Kip, kip, kip.

0:01:440:01:47

Ru-tu, ru-tu, ru-tu-tu!

0:01:470:01:49

Too-whit, too-whit, too-whit, too-woo!

0:01:490:01:52

Chucka, chucka, weet, weet, weet.

0:01:520:01:55

Tchikka, tchikka, tweet, tweet, tweet.

0:01:550:01:57

Urrah! Urrah! Rah, rah, ree.

0:01:570:02:00

Kitcha, kitcha, kee, kee, kee.

0:02:000:02:02

Can any more fit on this tree?

0:02:040:02:06

It looks a little full to me.

0:02:060:02:08

All is quiet, all still.

0:02:090:02:13

Not a sound, at least, until,

0:02:130:02:16

a huge bird, with a mighty beak,

0:02:160:02:19

joins them with a piercing shriek.

0:02:190:02:22

KIIYAAA!

0:02:220:02:24

Now this bird thinks his job is done.

0:02:240:02:27

The little branch is all his own.

0:02:270:02:30

He hasn't seen the butterfly,

0:02:300:02:33

gently, gently floating by.

0:02:330:02:36

Look out, bird!

0:02:360:02:38

She softly lands.

0:02:380:02:40

And in a flash, crack!

0:02:400:02:42

Crash!

0:02:420:02:44

Oh.

0:02:440:02:45

The biggest bird,

0:02:460:02:47

the loudest call,

0:02:470:02:49

but whatever could have made him fall?

0:02:490:02:53

Oh.

0:02:540:02:55

What a busy tree that was!

0:02:570:03:00

Well, at least it's nice and quiet now,

0:03:000:03:02

thanks to that butterfly.

0:03:020:03:04

So, we can all snuggle into our nests

0:03:040:03:08

and go to sleep.

0:03:080:03:09

Night, night, radar. Sleep tight!

0:03:100:03:12

And night, night, to you, too.

0:03:130:03:15

HE SNORES

0:03:200:03:25

Big Bird reads a delightful tale about a group of feathered friends sharing a tree branch. As they sing a merry song together one flashy bird decides he wants the branch to himself. That is until something unexpected changes his mind.
