A crow was sitting on a branch of a tree with a piece of meat in her beak. A Fox passed by and saw the meat and immediately wanted to figure out a way to get the meat. He approached the tree and saluted the crow: “What a beautiful bird is above me. The color of her plumage is without equal. If only I could hear her sing!”
The crow enjoyed the compliments and decided to return the favor by singing for the fox. Of course the meat fell. The fox snatched it and ran into the woods.
