The bird-catcher thought that if he could lure the lark into a trap, he could sell it for a good price.

He thought for a moment and said, “Oh lark, I am planning to build a colony for all the birds and I am laying the foundation of my first home.”

Having set the trap, the birder went to a nearby place and hid in the bushes.

Meanwhile, Skylark, who believed the man, flew into the trap.

Having swallowed the bait, the lark tried to fly away, but ended up in the bird-catcher’s trap.

While the lark was trying to escape, the bird-catcher came and put him in a cage.

“You’re a smart guy!” – exclaimed the Lark. “If you’re going to build a colony like that, then you won’t find many birds to settle in.”
