Three crows, all male, were perched atop an enormously tall pine tree overlooking the forest. Suddenly one of them spotted a dove down below.
He swooped down, picked up the dove, and took her into the bushes. After a few minutes, the dove emerged to say, “I’m a dove and I’ve been loved!”
A while later the second crow spotted a lark. He swooped down, picked it up, and went into the bushes. A few minutes later, the lark came out and said, “I’m a lark and I’ve been sparked!”
A bit later, the last crow spotted a duck. He swooped down and took the duck into the bushes.
Not even a minute went by before the bird flew out saying, “I’m a drake and there’s been a big mistake!”
