The Legend of the Partridge
Last updated 3/23/2016 at 7:03pm
All the song birds in the forest had stopped singing. They were afraid of a giant hawk that had just moved into the forest and was killing the small songbirds. They stopped singing because when the hawk heard them singing he'd swoop down, grab them with his talons and carry them away and eat them.
Only the partridge was safe from the hawk because his brown feathers blended with the dirt and weeds and the partridge didn't sing pretty songs or fly higher than a bush so the hawk never saw him.
The song birds had beautiful, bright feathers and had often made fun of the poor partridge...
