THE SMALL SPOTTED SANDPIPER
SWOOSH, BAM! The tides roughly striked the graceful wetland leaving almost nothing in it’s path. But deeper in the wetland there is so much movement and chaos it could give you goosebumps. Somewhere in the wetland some sandpipers eggs have hatched! One of the small, tiny sandpipers was pretty confused but finally gained the courage to go teach himself how to get food. He looked around noticing all of the waters striders, side swimmers, small fish and other insects that he could eat! After a few ( MANY ) attempts he had eaten around 20 yummy bugs! He wanted to get another but it was getting very late, he felt like he weighed a million pounds ( even though he only weighs two AA batteries when he grows up ), he was super tired. He got tucked into his nest with all his brothers and sisters and dreamt that he was ready for tomorrow, and he was.
After about seventeen to twenty one days the small sandpiper was ready to leave, he is all grown up he has his little brown spots all over him, and so people don’t get confused between spotted sandpipers and a normal sandpipers he and his family has a white line right over their eyes. Even though he is just a few days old he is ready to leave, he practiced every single day.
After a big bug meal he was ready for blast off! He tucked his wings back, took one step, two step, jumped……FLEW!!
As he was flying he watched every water source carefully to see if it is a good place or not, CLASP! Something grabbed the small sandpipers neck, hard, “OW” the small sandpiper screeched, you cannot even imagine the pain he is going through, You could see him gasping for air he knew he would not be alive for much longer.
After a few minutes the small sandpiper was slowly dying luckily the unknown hawk finally found a yummier meal and took off dropping the poor Sandpiper. SPLOOSH! The small sandpiper harshly landed in some water, he carefully swam up still carrying the shock he had with him, he also noticed the grand amount of bugs swimming away.
Once he got up he quickly made this place his home having big bug meals most of the time.
About one year later...
SWOOSH, BAM! The tides roughly striked the graceful wetland leaving almost nothing in it’s path. The sun was shining so hard it felt like it was stinging your eyes. Let’s just say it was not the best day ever. Anyways…. The small sandpipers eggs have hatched! Sadly, the mother was not there because she went off somewhere far away to lay more eggs! ( which means more small sandpipers ) Which means the small sandpipers cycle starts all over again.
