Forty-Sixth Day in the Trees
Today was fairly uneventful. However, the trees here seem to be a bit shorter. They rise above us higher than the swamp trees did, but not nearly as high as most of the trees in this forest. They're slimmer as well. They don't seem stunted, for they seem as healthy as any of the twisted trees in these woods. I think they might be younger. Is this a new patch of forest, maybe?
I did see something strange today. There was a bird that seemed to be flying backwards above me. It had orange and blue feathers, and it was flying among the branches overhead, so that I didn't get a good look at it. I'll need to keep a closer eye out to see if it passes again, and if I really saw what I thought I saw.
Besides that, everything was fairly normal, for these woods. We heard birds singing, caught a pair of rabbits who hadn't heard me in time, but there wasn't anything too strange. However, I feel as though something's wrong. I can't put my finger on it. Perhaps I'll discover it tomorrow.
