Panel 3 of Cantiga 142 of the Cantigas de Santa Maria of Alfonso X

King don Alfonso and his men were hunting on the banks of the Henares River.
One of his falcons injured a heron and broke its wing. The heron fell into the river.
The dogs could not retrieve the bird because the current was too swift.
