Why does the Torah write "Osah" after the bird rather than "Osam" after the hyssop?


Rashi: To teach the Kohen not to tie the bird together with the cedar-stick, the crimson thread and the hyssop when dipping them into the water.


Why does it then add "v'eis ha'Tzipor ha'Chayah"?


Rashi: To teach him that, although he does not tie the live bird together with the other three items, it must nevertheless be dipped into the water.
