The story is very good. I think ... Yes, the sparrow is clever bit Ido not agree the type of cheating play like that. I think that all of the bird need to fly as high as they can. I know, the sparrow is very smart but I think it is a little cheating you know ... So I think, the eagle should be the king of the bird. But I do not know why that sparrow hie be hind the eagle's head but the eagle can't feeling that. And I know that the sparrow can't fly the highest but when he fly over eagle's head he did not fall.
