A man is out hunting with his two wives and his brother. They find an eagle's nest and he climbs up to get the eagle babies. His brother runs off with the wives, leaving him stranded in a tree. This traditional story is told in English and Ngaanyatjarra and comes from the region near the intersection of the WA, NT and SA borders.
