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.
A little girl rescues a baby bird. Her mother has a phobia for the the creatures but eventaully relents and lets her nurse the bird back to health. But before long, the little bird begins to terrorize them and it brought friends. A bunch of them.
For a short story, it packed a lot of punch. I remember the movie The Birds and it helped me picture scenes from when the birds attack this family. You wouldn’t think a bird could do much damage, but hundreds of them sure can.
Lots of action and a twist at the end made this a twisted good read.
In fairness, third person, present tense rarely works for me. It always comes across as telling and emotionless. "She's is looking at me. He is scared." Not quotes from this story, but same kind of thing.
