The Secret of The Talking Bird
Timma the fowler finds a parrot in his net. He is taken aback when the bird speaks to him, asking him to release it. He lets it go. As it flies away, the parrot tells him to wait for the next bird to land in his net,a bird so lovely that even a king would be proud to own it. The parrot's gift sets Timma off on a series of adventures, each more incredible than the previous and behind it all, is the parrot's own secret. This exciting folk tale is a re-telling of Dr. Chandrashekhar Kambar's Kannada tale, Matanaduva Gili Mattu Bedara Huduga.
