Have you ever heard of the Adarna Bird?
Fortunately, I've never been pooped on by the Adarna bird. Other birds? Yes. Haven't turned into stone yet, though. Knock on droppings! Interesting lens. Thanks!
Ibong Adarna is a mythical story, formed in narrative song and poetry called corrido and considered a big part of the Philippine literature, usually studied as part of the secondary curriculum in the country.

During those times, Ibong Adarna was known as Other critiques said that it has been written by Jose dela Cruz, a great poet here also known as Huseng Sisiw. This amazing folklore is about love, sacrifice and fantasy. Ibong Adarna literally means Adarna Bird. The story centers about catching the mythical bird that possesses magical powers. The Adarna bird is so beautiful and could change in a lot of stunning forms. It is very much hard to catch. It knows a total of seven songs which could either enchant anyone to sleep, turn into stone or heal a deadly sickness. Which is why the almost dying King Fernando of Berbania tasked his three sons to catch the magical bird. That’s where the story begins…So King Fernando tasked his three sons to hunt the magical bird. Don Pedro went first but he wasn’t successful. He may have reached Mount Tabor and the tree of Piedras Platas where the Adarna bird nested but the prince fell asleep after hearing the bird’s song. Worse he turned into a stone when the lovely bird pooped on him. The second prince, Don Diego went to hunt next. Unfortunately, he had the same bitter chance like his older brother. The kingdom was counting on Don Juan, so he went next.One night, King Fernando had a bad dream. He saw that his youngest Prince and his favorite, Don Juan was thrown away in a creepy deep well. The King started to get weak for some unknown reasons. It seemed that nothing could bring back his healthy condition. His medical advisors told him that the only cure to his unexplained sickness is a lullaby sung by the Adarna bird.Luckily, Don Juan’s strength returned. He has been healed by the poor old man he helped in the mountain. He came back to the Kingdom of Berbania. King Fernando has known the truth when the bird started singing after seeing Don Juan. The King went well and stronger than ever. He wanted to punish his two sons but Don Juan asked his father to just forgive them. The King granted his request and asked the three princes to guard the Adarna bird. Because of Don Pedro, the bird flew away and escaped. Don Juan went away from the kingdom so the king won’t punish his brother.
