The next day, the battle was again fierce. But this time the wind was gentle and the birds were able to organize. They pecked at the eyes of the mammals and flew away before they could be touched.
That evening, Bat snuck away from the mammal's camp and quietly flew back up into the sky to join the triumphant birds. When they complained that they had seen him on the mammal's side during the battle, Bat again flapped his wings and claimed to belong with the birds.
