The memo written in blood.

A Tale of Birds without a Voice is a memo written in blood that Harry Mason can find in the music room on the second floor of Midwich Elementary School in Silent Hill. It gives a clue to the Piano Puzzle located in the same room. A gold medallion must first be placed in the Clock Tower for the piano to be unlocked. Solving the puzzle will allow Harry to obtain the silver medallion, which is needed to unlock the clock tower door.


"First flew the greedy Pelican,
eager for the reward.
White wings flailing.

Then came a silent Dove,
flying beyond the Pelican,
as far as he could.

A Raven flies in,
flying higher than the Dove.
Just to show he can.

A Swan glides in to find a peaceful spot
next to another bird.

Finally, out comes a Crow,
coming quickly to a stop, yawning and then napping.

Who will show the way?
Who will be the key?
Who will lead to the silver reward?"

Demo version

In the demo version that was shipped with the Official PlayStation U.S. Magazine #16, the text of the memo was largely different, likely due to the demo not having been correctly translated to English yet. The memo in the demo was as follows:

Demo US Magazine Birds Memo

The memo as shown in the demo.

"First flew a hasty pelican,
Rushing for the reward.

Next flew a dandy stork,
Eager to show he could
fly higher than the pelican.

I forget who came next, but
she only flew a half flap overhead
the stork.

The one came next to the dandy.
Just left of him.

Last out came a raven of
low birth she yawned and
lay down for a nap.

The End."
