[soc.culture.british] Looking for stories/poems about birds

eadykst@PacBell.COM (Elizabeth A. Dykstra) (01/31/91)

I am working on a project that could use some help.  My friends are having
their first baby soon, and I am making a gift for the baby.  I am collecting
stories about birds (both parents are bird-watchers) for a book and a
quilt.  I am looking for a bird for each letter of the alphabet, and a
folktale, poem, or story about each bird.

If you have heard such a story and wouldn't mind telling it, or referring
to where I might find it, could you please send email to me at

If you would like to read what I gather, send a note along and I will
