A Jay venturing into a yard where
Peacocks used to walk, found there a
number of feathers which had fallen
from the Peacocks when they were
He tied them all to his tail and
strutted down towards the Peacocks.
When he came near them they soon
discovered the cheat, and striding
up to him pecked at him and plucked
away his borrowed plumes.
So the Jay could do no better than
go back to the other Jays, who had
watched his behaviour from a
distance; but they were equally
annoyed with him, and told him:
"It is not only fine feathers that
make fine birds".
Moral of Aesop's Fable:
"It is not only fine
make fine birds"
