    Post correct usage

    "I see a bird in the sky now." or "I saw a bird in the sky now." or "I have seen a bird in the sky now" or "am seeing."
    could you please tell me which one of these is correct.

    thanking in anticipation

    Re: correct usage

    The use if "now" usually means you should use simple present, or in many cases (not this one) present progressive.

    Use "see."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
