Three Birds
Three birds, the sivi (rainbow lorikeet), the boyep (pheasant dove) and the eya (white-eye) are initially friends. The lorikeet is jealous of the pheasant dove's colourful plumage and persuades the white-eye to cheat the dove so the lorikeet can steal its plumage. Thus, when the white-eye and the dove take a swim in the pool, they leave their clothes at the edge of the pool. Then the white-eye persuades the dove to take a dive and while it has its head under water, the lorikeet steals its clothes. From then on, the pheasant dove cannot stand the vicinity of the white-eye.
