Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Kakkara Jātaka:The story of a wise bird who,seeing a farmer trying to catch him,avoided him till the farmer was quite exasperated.In the end the farmer camouflaged himself like a tree,but the bird laughed in his face.

The story was related in reference to a monk,a fellow-celibate ofSāriputta.This monk was very careful about his body,and earned the reputation of a dandy.The bird is identified with the monk (J.ii.161f).

This story bears some resemblance to the second Sakuntaka Jātaka in the Mahāvastu,particularly to the latter part of it.v.l.Kukkura.
