M0044 = Perry557. Source: Phaedrus, Perotti’s Appendix 6.32 (adapted into prose). This is Perry 557. Phaedrus has given us a folk-name for the bird, “ground-bird,” but this name is not attested in any other source, making it impossible to identify just what species of bird this might be. Compare the fable of the wolf trying to lure a goat down from her place of safety, #322.
