A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground in a large field.
"Oh, woe is me! I am going to die alone in this field."
While it was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on it.
"Oh, woe is me! I am going to die alone in this field covered in cow dung."
As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, it began to realize how warm it was. The dung was actually thawing him out. He lay there all warm and happy and soon began to sing for joy.
"Oh, for joy! I am not going to die alone in this field covered with cow dung."
A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.
