The Owl and the Pigeon

Written By Demi Yurfina on Kamis, 28 April 2016 | 20.36

In the past, Owl and Pigeon were friends. Almost every morning they sat on the same tree to talk and watch the sunlight.
One morning, Owl boasted that there were more owls than pigeons. “No, “said Pigeon. “That’s not true.” There’s only one way to find out, “hooted Owl, puffed out its feathers. They then agreed to count when the sun rises the following week in the Big Wood.
A week later, the owls arrived first. They swooped down from every direction and perched on every tree in the wood. Not long after that, thousands of pigeons swooped down in the Big Wood, blacking out the sky.
As the pigeon landed, the owls had to shuffle close together. Branches were broken when too many pigeons landed at once. The owls couldn’t cover their eyes and their ears. The noise of flapped wings and scratchy feet was deafening. Their eyes grew wider and wider, they felt nervous. Being surrounded and squashed by many pigeons was a bit scary. One by one the owl took off, fled skywards. Their staring eyes flatten ever wider open by the wind rushing passing through.
No one did any counting. The pigeons were shouting to each other, celebrating their victory. Since then, owls have always travelled at night when pigeons are sleep.
