By the sky a black rook was flying low, and he thought he heard someone shout from below:
- Where are you going rook friend ?!
And the bird was distracted, falling like a rag in a garlic garden and, of course, face down.
He saw at the moment that the one who spoke was a beetle, a little tadpole and with a lot of self-confidence.
- Hello rook! Hello rook! - greeted the beetle.
The rook got up with a lot of work, between heads of garlic, and his two wings were all covered with weeds, as if he were scourer.
- Oh, poor me! Shit! - scream a worm underneath, coughing up a foam.
The rook fell on him and was like a rag.
A jay saw it all!

- The rook is a bird that has dark feathers and a whitish beak. It has hardly any feathers in the area closest to the beak. It is common in Europe, where in some areas it is known as a graja.
- Rooks are often confused with crows, because they are similar. However, they differ in size and bill.
- Rooks are very intelligent birds and they learn very quickly about what they see and experience. There are some birds that, for example, stand at the traffic lights in the streets and throw nuts on the road for cars to run over them and, in this way, be able to eat the fruit inside. So clever!
- There are several popular sayings that name this bird. One of them is 'When the rook flies low, it's fucking cold'. But this has led to others such as 'When the rook goes up, you can't see a single cloud' or 'When the rook flies low, don't take off your petticoat'. And it is that popular wisdom says that the flight of this bird can help you predict the weather.
