According to the riddle, something happened at the lake during the time of the day. So the most proper animal that we can think of is a duck that is present in the lake. Pick up the token with the duck and place it in front of the sun since the hint tells us that the event at the lake happened during the daytime.

The riddle gives us a hint that something red appears during dusk. And only a bird can possibly be red, whereas the other animals do not fit that description. So all you have to do here is to place the token with the image of a bird in front of dusk or sunset.

Token In Front Of Full Moon
