Okay, Junior, forget about pecking at houses. This is how we find the best bugs — on the trees. You hold on with your toes and hop around all sides of the tree. The tree doesn’t mind. It thinks we’re hugging it.
And keep an eye out for hawks. They like to snatch up flickers, especially young naive little morsels like you.
You got that? Look, I didn’t mean to frighten you, but we have to watch out for them at all times.
Okay, Mom. Sheesh! It sure is a long way down!
Oooooh, look! A rabbit!
Yikes! So it is! Keep looking up, Junior!
Never mind the rabbit!
