Chirp was discovered by the Flock under the juniper bush. After searching in vain for his parents, they took him under their collective wings.
His real name is Bartholomew Alexander. Quite a large handle, so they nicknamed him Chirp, the sound he made leading to his rescue.
Chirp is at the youngster stage of endless questioning.
“If the early bird catches the worm, why doesn’t the worm wait and come out later? If two geese knock into each other, is that goose bumps? If it is lovely weather for ducks, why do they look so grumpy right now?”
Through Chirp, the Flock is constantly reminded to not take life for granted. To wonder at happenings around them. To be curious. To live an aware life.
He might be the youngest flock member, but he is quite possibly the cleverest, wouldn’t you say?
