  1. (continued from previous page)
    owl is always out in the night and this is the reason. All birds cried into a basin till they had it full and intended to drown the wren in it, but the owl stepped into it and spilt it and they followed him to kill him but did not catch him, and he is even afterwards afraid of the other birds to be out in the day.
