Where do Birds go at Night?

Where do birds go at night?
Not a sound,not a sight.

Walking down by the lake,
I hear the call the Magpies make,

High above in the tree,
Surveying all,that he can see.

A pigeon,a Gull or a blackbird too
may be seen about,but very few.

Walking back,I’m in no rush,
What’s that noise from within the bush?

Is it a sparrow? there’s a deadly hush,
I’m waiting to see….NO its a Thrush!

With it’s beak full of feed,
hurrying back for those in need.

The Swans,the Coots,Mallards too
Settling down in the evening dew.

The tern makes his final flight
Before nestling down for the night.

I still don’t know where they go at night,
but you never know,one day I might!
