The Adarna is a unique and wonderful bird in Philippine folklore. It can change the color of its feathers into more radiant and enchanting shades. Its song is so sweet that it can lull anyone to sleep, and once its droppings fall on a person, he or she will turn into stone. In this tale, Don Juan captures the elusive bird not because of agility or intelligence, but because of his golden heart.
