Meet Flamboyant Bernadette.
She is gloriously outrageous in her style. Born with average plumage, Bernie simply embellishes. Feathers of all sizes and colours get tucked among her own. Red from the cardinals, blue from the jays, yellow from the finches. Tiny from the wrens, huge from the wild turkeys. She wears it all.
Sure it’s cast off feathers, but that is part of the thrill. Each morning Bernie goes on a feather treasure hunt, then rocks her new outfit for the rest of the day.
Some of the other birds tsk tsk about her complete lack of fashion sense. “What is that Bernie going to wear today?” Not Bernadette’s flock though. Their attitude is “Can’t wait to see what Bernie wears today!”
Bernie doesn’t actually care one way or the other. She dresses this way for herself, because it makes her feel amazing.
High couture? No.
This bird has PIZZAZZ!
