The Rainbirds free pdf From the top of the tallest tree in the park, Gleeson can see distant mountains. And he knows, because his father has told him, that in winter big black mountain birds will fly down to the city to shelter from the stormy alpine weather. So Gleeson waits for the arrival of the 'rainbirds' and when they do fly into his local park, it's as if they've brought the wilderness with them into his world.
