Why owls only come out at night
Many, many years ago, the owls woke up every day with the sunrise and lived with the rest of the day birds.
His job was to dye colors to the other birds in the forest. They gave beautiful and striking colors to the plumages of their companions, and all the birds were very happy with them because the owls were very conscientious in their work.
With their color palette they carefully designed each of the feathers and mixed, composed and chose each tone very carefully so that each bird had its own color.
However, sometimes, they were wrong and the plumage was very similar.
The crow, who had a beautiful immaculate white suit, did not want to risk being painted for fear of looking like other birds, so he always kept away from the owl.
But one day, convinced by the suggestive colors that her flight companions possessed, she decided to approach the owl and ask her for a new color. Quería She wanted her plumage to be very original, that it was not like any other bird, that it did not look like anything, not even that it approached others. So much effort put in that request that the owl was long time thinking what colors could give him. He thought about mixing many different tones, but he realized that the birds of the tropics also had very attractive colors, the same happened with the peacocks, which he had endowed with a plumage so beautiful that it was almost
unequaled .The owl wanted to be so original, that it only occurred to him that in the simplicity of the color he would find something different, so he decided to paint the crow
all of black color , a color that no bird had entirely in its feathers.- You can be proud crow - said the owl - you have a plumage that no other bird has.
The crow looked at its reflection in the river, and seeing its feathers as black as coal, it became angry and decided to take revenge on the owl
. Since then the crows get into the owls whenever they have a chance, and that is why, b the owls hide during the dayand only poke their feathers when they are protected by the darkness of the night, when the crows sleep.
