There's aspect of bird capabilities such as breaking glass that wasn't 100% plausible, and the final character in the story, I would have liked to have seen their encounter played out, especially since we'd already gone into an extensive background to form a dislike for them. It's probably a story without much likability for its human characters. But if you're a fan of creatures attacking humans fiction, The Bird is worth while checking out.
Winnie is the young girl in question; when she finds the tiny creature and brings it into her home, her mother Sally is terrified...she had a bad experience with a bird in her formative years and it's left her mentally scarred ever since. Nevertheless, not wanting Winnie to inherit her phobia, Sally steels herself, (feeling guilty that the bird survived her whacking it with a broom) and allows Winnie to continue to nurse the fledgling albino raven, as her daughter loves the bird's sparkling green eyes,
Resisting Winnie's request to take it to a vet's and undermined by her husband James, who sides with Winnie in keeping it at least overnight, Sally rises early after a sleep-deprived, worried night and takes the bird outside in its shoebox haven, hoping to get rid of it and bury the evidence before Winnie wakes up.
What happens next will shock and terrify you - and ensure you never let your child act as Good Samaritan to a green-eyed albino raven!!

Then take everything I have written in first sentence and replace with the following: vicious, terrifying, malevolent, pecking, ripping & clawing.
That's right you know what I am talking about its kind of like Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Birds' this is a fast paced with suspense that keeps building throughout.
Just when you thought it was safe to go outside...
