4.Hey while we're at it we should multiply and destroy farmlands.
3.So are we!
2.Guys I can't deal with these wolves anymore. I'm going to Lake Stymphalian!
1.Hey, the birds I created are flying away.
4.No problem dude ill have it done lickety-split!
5.I hope he fails.
1.Ok Hercules, so like you know that group of Stymphalian birds that live in a nest in Lake Stymphalian?
3.Yeah.....well, I want you to kill the birds for me if that's cool with you bruh.
Stymphalian birds were a group of monstrous birds. They ate humans, had beaks of bronze, feathers were sharp and metallic, and their dung was poisonous.
1.I can't get passed the land to the nest safely.
2. Awe its ok my homie Hephaestus gave me this rattle that's perfect for this job buddy.
They were created by the God of War Ares. They were hunted by wolves and to escape the birds flew to lake Stymphalian. They reproduced quickly and destroyed farm lands and the countryside.
*RATTLE *RATTLE *RATTLE
Killing the birds was the fifth task that was assigned to Hercules. King Eurystheus asked him to kill the birds, hoping that he would fail.
We have men down on the right side!! ABORT ABORT ABORT!!!!!!!!
The land around the lake where the nest was located was a marsh. Hercules could not safely step there. The Goddess Athena wanted to help him and gave him a rattle that the God Hephaestus, a blacksmith had made especially for this occasion.
Hercules used the rattle to scare the birds so they would abandoned their nest and start flying.
AHH!! Whats that noise...we've been fooled.
He then shot them down with an arrow which he had dipped in the poisonous blood of the monster Hydra. The remaining birds flew away.
