Oh, by the way, I am Hawawaa the Hummingbird. The boss of the Secret Agent Headquarters of North America (S.A.H.N.A.). An occupation where when we find out that there was a murder, we go, find out who, and arrest them. I am exceedingly busy with this job. We have caught so many animals, there are too many to count!

Well first, Bert was over at his friend Kurt 's tree, whose tree is very small unlike mine. Kurt is a northern pygmy owl that is nocturnal but stays awake a lot during the day to watch out for predators like foxes or cats.

Then, I suddenly stepped on some kind of branch or button or something like that. Something fell from on top of me. I never found out what it was, however I got stuck. Suddenly, someone opened the door. No matter who it was it was scary. So scary that I flew right out of the sticky substance and the out the window. As I sat down on my kitchen counter panting and out of breathe, I started to come up with a plan to get into the house, and make it so that Bert couldn 't get in at all.
