Do you know what kind of bird I am,
Dressed in my all-white coat, like a winter Ermine?
Am I, a true Albino? This fact, even the experts cannot determine,
But from my shape and call,
I’m sure I don’t fool anyone at all,
For, I’m a very well known bird, to you and me,
Yes, I’m a very undressed, but very white, little Chickadee!
