A big, greedy bird steals a small birds pickings and store it in his cave. Then he steals a mother birds nest and then even her three eggs. His malicious greed goes so far that he even wants to steal the sun. Hi climbs to the sky, detaches the sun's rays and despite opposition, he succeeds in stealing the sun and closes it to his chest in the cave. As darkness results and the flowers slowly die, he realizes his mistake and sadly lies down. The little bird finds the sun's rays and reassembles in correct order. The big bird understands the intention, and helps him. He brings the sun out of his chest and sets it as the last piece of the puzzle into the corona whereupon the sun begins to shine again. The big bird returns all stolen things and all play happily together.
