A bird was flying at the sky at 12 afternoon on a very hot sunny summer day. But on the earth, there was a shadow of a single wing. Bird had two winds. Why there was not shadow of second wing?

The bird is keeping one wing over its head to shade it from the sun !!

Somehow, these so called lateral thinking puzzles dont appeal! They always have only one correct answer - that of the puzzle creator.

Very well said. The puzzle creator expects everybody to think laterally and he himself cannot think laterally. He contineously disapproves other ansewrs which can be as good as the one in creator's mind.

Nothing wrong in it as long as you are a creator/poster of that puzzle.
