For megancrewe, this is from A Posse of Princesses by Sherwood Smith a.k.a. sartorias, which has the worst cover art and design ever*, but is a quite charming book if you can get past that:
A quick shadow flitted across the other side of the window. What had to be the other parent bird darting at a third bird, larger, with bright red and yellow feathers. Again and again it darted, warbling a loud, excited fall of notes, until the strange bird flew off, skimming over the treetops.
And for anywherebeyond, from Sarah Beth Durst's Into the Wild:
"Thanks for saving my life and all that. Can we leave now? Please?"
Though you may of course feel free to ignore the tag if you like.
* I'm sorry, sartorias! But it really is awful, and doesn't do your delightful story and diverse cast of characters justice.
