Writing on the Edge
The Bird's Word

Let's play a game. I'll describe a familiar object. Your job? Figure out what it is. If you are successful, I will whistle in your honor later. Okay?
The object is made of plastic, metal, and a form of something like solid, green sand. Some have buttons. Some have a window with a picture. Some have both. This device makes noise and speaks and hears in a variety of languages, depending on the human using it. It can squawk over amazingly far distances and relies on orbiting objects to collect and relay the squawks. It's too big to hold in my foot, but humans hold it very well with one hand.
What do you think it is?
