Stick: eh, Bird, do you know where Heron is? I have not seen him lately.
Bird: he left for Oklahoma a few days ago.
Stick: for Oklahoma? But what will he do there, it's dangerous. There are many hunters.
Bird: oh, he's smart, he lives in a wildlife refuge, it's safer.
Stick: yes, but the trip, the distance ...
Bird: he flies at night, and he takes his time. He knows the way well, do not worry about him.
Stick: he did not want to stay with us?
Bird: he thought about it, especially if you bring him fish regularly, but it's too cold here, and if the lake is frozen, he has nothing to do.
Stick: that's true, I had not thought about that. I will miss him though. Do you have his address?
Bird: I have it somewhere, in case something happens.
Bird: if there is no more fish, for example. You know that ponds are shallow and full of leaves. If they freeze too deeply, there is not enough oxygen in the remaining open water, and the fish die.
Stick: are you kidding?
Bird: not at all, Stick, it has happened before.
Stick: for a bird, you know a lot about nature. I am impressed.
Bird: Stick, how do you think we survive if we learn nothing of the world around us?
Stick: I thought instinct guided you.
Bird instinct! We would not go far with instinct! Conditions change quickly, and we need to adapt, especially now that humans constantly alter the environment.
Stick: are all animals like this?
Bird: yes, of course, intelligence is not limited to plants like you.
Stick: I'm not a plant, Bird, I am a tree, part of a tree to be exact.
Bird: ah, yes, trees are quite proud of their status, I had forgotten.
Stick: you had also forgotten that they host you, and that you can perch on them. But tell me, how do you send mail to Heron?
Bird: for long distances, geese or ducks are in charge. For small distances, you can count on owls.
Stick: you are really well organized!
Bird: ha, ha, Stick, you don' t know everything! It should not prevent you from singing, though.
Stick: don't worry, Bird, don't worry, I remember your advice.
