A bird had made her nest(巢穴) in a farmer’s field, and her babies were almost grown.
The owner of the field came and said, “I must ask all my neighbors to help me with my harvest(收割).”
One of the young birds heard him, and asked his mother where they should move for safety.
“We don’t need to move yet, my son,” she replied.
The owner came a few days later, and said, “I will come by myself tomorrow, and start the harvest(收割).”
Then the bird said to her young, “It is time to go. His friends aren’t coming. He will do the work himself.”
MORAL: If you need something done properly, do it yourself.
