Queen of the birds
Once a fox was feeling very hungry . He roamed here and there in search of food but could not find anything to eat .
To take rest it sat under a tree . When the fox looked up , he saw , to his great joy , a crow sitting on one of the branches of the tree. He was holding a piece of meat in his beak .
On seeing this , his mouth began to water and started thinking about the piece of meat . At last he hit upon a plan to get the piece of meat from the crow .
He got up and said to crow , " Good morning . I am glad to meet you . How handsome you look ! What a nice beak you have ! But if you could sing so sweet as you are beautiful , you could win for yourself the title of the ' Queen of the birds ' . "
The foolish crow was taken in by the oily talk of the fox . He felt happy . He at once opened his beak to sing . As he gave out a loud caw in his cracked voice , the piece of meat fell down on the ground .
The fox picked it up and ate it up at once . The poor crow had to repent on his foolishness .
Do not give way to flattery .
