Swans from Australia

 

One day two swans from Australia were taking a far away journey. When it started raining they went into this little den. In half an hour it stopped raining and they tried to go back home but they didn't know which direction to go because it was too wet and it looked different. When they started flying again they thought they were in Australia. They decided to stay there for a couple days and they nested in the country with a lot of other different birds. Their eggs hatched in thirty days and the little birds learned how to fly very soon. So they moved to a different place.

One day they heard hunters shooting. They got scared and took off and went far away from the villages. When they finally settled down they stayed for five or six days. They got used to the place and they stayed longer. After a month or so they got bored, so the swans moved to Hawaii and they stayed there for three to four years or more. People got used to them and they got used to the people. There were these two Hawaiian kids that really wanted them but their parents said they might kill them , and besides they were wild birds. So they left them alone, but every day they would feed them.

Then one day the two oldest swans died and the four birds that were left had to be on their own. They lived in Hawaii for a long time because they didn't know which direction to go. They stayed near the beach and never went far away from there ever again.
