Or maybe another tree of the genus Schinus.

To answer Rostrum (Yahoo truncated the digest
part of the point of the folk-tale is to explain bird
behavior.  The song I posted explains why the owl says
"ticu-ticu" (and there may be a Spanish pun here, but
I couldn't get my teacher to commit himself on the
subject); Wijzer's version explains both why the owl
says "cu" and why the "snake-eater bird" is silent.
And it explains why you might name an invisible town
Pajarocu.  If there's anything else, I'm missing it.
