Hunting Warbler in Wild Field

Do not go after the Emerald Kingfisher when you travel,
Do not get close to Palace Wu Swallow when you rest.
The fire burned down the palace would also burn the nest,
The net used to capture the kingfisher could also get you trapped.
If only flapping the unobtrusive wings among those basils,
Even the harriers high above could not do you any bad.
