"Phebes, we're moving on soon," called Nokotta, not wanting to leave
her and Haigor behind.
"Okay I just want to see what bird it is that's crying," said Phebes.
"Whoa, mama, what'd you find?" said Haigor as Phebes crouched by the
small brownish bird. It was a rather ugly creature, thought Haigor,
but it was small and helpless and in need of rescue and he knew his
mama would take to it.
"Hi little guy." Phebes reached out to pet the bird. The creature had
no wings that she could see, it looked like a piece of downy fluff
with eyes and a beak and feet. Phebes looked at her son. "I think
it's a doduo. With one head..."
The bird didn't answer, only looked hazily up at them and closed its
eyes. Phebes lifted the bird from where it lay in some shrivelled up
grasses and looked carefully. "It's still breathing. Let's go take it
"Yeah!" Haigor danced along ahead of his mother. "We found a birdie!
We found a birdie!"
"What is that you've got there Phebes?" Nokotta had a look. It looked
nothing like any pokemon she had ever seen.
"A doduo with one head," said Phebes. "I think..."
Nokotta had never seen a doduo before. But she had heard something
vague of what they looked like. "I've heard they usually have two
heads. I guess not this one, though. That one looks like it's dying,
"I hope it lives. I think it's just shivering to death in the cold.
Maybe if I warm it up," said Phebes.
"You'll have to feed it the right food. Birds...they eat various
things depending on the species. As I don't know what doduos eat you
might be on your own with this one. Start with things like worms, I
believe baby birds thrive on them."
"Thanks. Yeah I gotta feed it and everything," said Phebes. "You'll
help hunt for worms right Haigor?"
"Yeah!" said Haigor. That sounded kind of fun.
