The Thirsty Pidgeon

posted in Birds misc |

A Pigeon, oppressed by extreme thirst, saw a cup of water painted on a signboard next to a road. Not realizing it was only a picture, she flew towards it with a loud whir and smashed against the signboard, jarring herself terribly.

Having broken her wings by the blow, she fell to the ground, and was caught by one of the bystanders.
