The romantic legend of the federal bird

The federal bird can be found on the northern mountain of Santa Fe. A tragic love story accompanies his singular song.

Urban Legends

In the north of the  province of Santa Fe  the federal bird abounds. He has an intense red head and chest, just like his thighs. The rest of the body, jet black.  His song is sad , like a grieving litany.

The  legend  that summons us speaks of  a good and happy man  who lived on the mountain of that region, in the company of his wife. They loved each other very much.

The days passed gentle for the  couple , despite the rugged place, that he was dismantling little by little to make corn crops. She took care of household chores and a few sheep they had. At night they sat down to rest,  talked and dreamed  about the children that God would surely send them in the future.

One day, a match of soldiers showed up at his ranch and led him to fight against invaders Indians. John said goodbye to his wife and went to war. It's been days, months years...  The  soldier  wasn't coming back . But his wife kept waiting for him.

The reunion

One summer morning she was watching the flowers that burst in multicolored corollas, giving a touch of  beauty  to her humble home, when she felt that from the foliage, which was scattered on the enramade, a  pájaro stranger was moving until he  perched on the nearest tree. MoVED by curiosity came up and the bird began to sing sadly. It had the colors of the soldiers' uniform: red head like a cap, black wings like arms and thigh red like pants.

 She understood that it was her husband  who, dead in some  battle , had transformed into a bird.

The wife could not bear the  grief  and, shortly thereafter, died to also become a federal bird. Since then, they live on the mountain and  never split .
