There was a quarrel between the birds and lizards. At one time a wuchini bird told to the lizard that he was very hungry and I will have to go to fetch some prey but I don’t have anybody else to look after my egg. So the lizard said he would look after the egg and not eat it, but the wuchini said she didn’t have any faith in this, so while returning after searching for prey, the wuchini had four eggs, but after returning only three were lying on the nest, so she told to the lizard, “you have eaten my egg”, so after that the lizard said “I haven’t eat your egg”. The wuchini said “OK, we will have a big meeting discussion regarding this with the other animals. So you call all the lizards and snakes (reptiles) and I will call all the birds big and small. And in the meeting the python meat was eaten by all the birds, and the python skin was made as a hat. After that this hat was fitted to each and every bird present at the meeting, but did not fit any of them, only to the hornbill, wurang.
