“A bird the size of a chicken, with scarlet feathers and long legs, was perched precariously, Its wings hung down loosely, and as we watched, a feather dropped away and floated slowly down through the green leaves.” In the short story “The Scarlet Ibis” a bird that was out of it's environment fell from a tree and died. The bird is a symbol for Doodle and the bird represents him. When the bird dies it foreshadows Doodle's death. Hurst uses figurative language and symbolism to create a gloomy tone in his short story by using symbolism and figurative language.
Absolutely nothing was left, as Albert Marrin wrote in his book, Years of Dust. This is especially emphasized on page 56, where he says: “All his hopes, all his hard work, had amounted to- nothing” (Marrin 56). The replanting of crops was easier said than done after acre after acre was eaten to the roots by seemingly harmless creatures.
Hurst uses the symbols birds, death and anything red to highlight the deeper meaning of this meaningful story. The bird symbolizes the death of Doodle. The bird, or also known as the scarlet ibis, is usually found to “...live in the tropics- South America to Florida” (Hurst 602), so when it was found underneath the tree in their yard after traveling so many miles just to end up dying they were greatly astonished.

The same practice is done by the pirate spiders of the Mimetidae family which is known for tugging on the webs of other spiders to coax its next meal, Hannah Wood, a veteran arachnologist and Smithsonian researcher who led the team to Madagascar, said. But she observed that the species does not eat another pelican spider. Wood reached that conclusion after she dropped several pelican spiders in a petri dish, but it did not attempt to eat one another and instead gave each other space. It wanders through the forest at night and waves its first pair of legs like a pair of large antennas. The spider makes big figure-eights as it walks while searching for draglines.
Paxton Schreiber Ms. Kiser English B4 11/29/16 Rough Draft One of the most common fears today is death,in the poem “I Heard a Fly Buzz- When I Died” by Emily Dickinson, Dickinson states that death does not mean the end of your presence on earth, It means the end of your time.

Once the Emerald Ash Borer becomes an adult, they do not pose much of a threat. They will mostly eat the leaves on the trees, which can cause some damage, but not nearly as much as the larvae. The larvae are what causes the real damage to the ash trees. The larvae will burrow into the tree, carving out tunnels. These tunnels then make it impossible for the ash trees to transport the nutrients it need throughout the tree.

We have decided this due to its endangerment, and to help memorialize an animal that is native to the Mojave Desert. The Desert Tortious is a magnificent animal that can survive ground temperature exceeding 140 degrees Fahrenheit and is also known to live as long as 60 to 80 years (Endangered Species International). The animal is listed as "threatened" under the United States federal Endangered Species Act and is considered “vulnerable” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. The tortoise is being killed by Non-native Sahara mustard which competes with the native plants for water and nutrients, poaching and driving off-highway vehicles within tortoise habitats, diseases such as the upper respiratory tract disease often found in captive tortoises, juveniles that have fragile thin shells can be attacked by ravens who eat the tortoises by pecking at their shells and eating what is inside, and even trash that they can eat poses a threat to desert tortoises (Endangered Species International). Due to its numbers decreasing by so many threats we want to commemorate the animal and give it a monument in its honor.
