The Scarlet Ibis
Answers 1Add Yours
By the end of the story, Doodle has become the scarlet ibis. Just like the ibis could not handle the storm to which it was subjected, Doodle was pushed past his limits with the training regimen, ultimately leading to death. Doodle related to the ibis more than anyone else; he felt a connection immediately, which led him to conduct a proper burial for the deceased bird. It is only at the end of the story that the narrator draws this parallel between Doodle and the Ibis, and by then it is far too late.
