Tess found some pools of
water trapped in the rocks. All
of a sudden, her ears went up.
There was a screeching sound
near the cliff.
“What is it, Tess?” whispered
Brad.
“Yap, yap, yap!” Tess answered.

Tess ran over to the cliff.
She jumped up and down. Brad
and Mom ran to see what Tess
had found.
“Oh, look, it’s a seabird,”
Mom cried in surprise.
“What has it done to get
trapped in this net?” asked Brad.
The seabird wouldn’t stay still.
It struggled to get away, but the
net surrounded it. It screeched
and screeched.
