One day a hawk and a crow flew together hunting for food. The two had no luck searching together so they agreed on flying in opposite directions and to share the game they caught when they returned
The crow flew to a broad lagoon that had many ducks and fish. The crow caught its prey and returned back to the spot where they were to return to. The hawk however wasn't as luck in its hunt for food.
As the hawk was flying back they had hoped the crow was successful and would graciously share the game as they had agreed on before. When the hawk met back up with the crow he saw that the crow had eaten all of the game that was caught. The hawk then told the crow he was unlucky in his search for food and would of liked it if the crow kept his promise.
The crow responded with you are lazy and you probably slept the entire day. This angered the hawk and he fought the crow. The hawk seized the crow and through him into the black ash from the fire. and the crow could not rid itself of the black ashes. This is why a crow is always black.
