Flock of Birds

They came to eat the Popcorn Snow that falls from the sky in the Land of Mo. Cap'n Bill ties up 20 of them and asks for three volunteers to fly Trot, Button-Bright and himself to another country. The three that agree are cousins and very young, only a few weeks out of the nest. They eat the last three Purple Berries and grow from the size on an eagle to be the size of a full grown ostrich. Cap'n Bill arranges a sling under each and they fly across the Deadly Desert carrying the old sailor, his young companion, and Button-Bright.

First appears in: The Scarecrow of Oz
