A bird in the claw is worth two in a tree

A hungry sparrow hawk was speeding through the sky when it spotted a little nightingale sitting in a tree-top, singing beautifully. Without a second thought, it swooped down and snatched the nightingale from her branch. She wriggled and squirmed, but couldn’t get free.

“Please don’t eat me,” begged the nightingale. “I’m such a little bird. I’d hardly make a mouthful for you. Let me go, and chase something bigger that would fill your tummy.” The sparrow hawk opened its beak wide. “If i could see something bigger, I would,” he said as he swallowed the nightingale.

But something is better than nothing.
