“…in the middle of this place was a large oak tree, and, [at] the top of the tree….”*
Here, it is a pine.
Or sometimes, you hear a sound just at head level.
“‘That buzzing-noise means something. You don’t get a buzzing-noise like that, just buzzing and buzzing, without its meaning something. If there’s a buzzing-noise, somebody’s making a buzzing-noise, and the only reason for making a buzzing-noise that I know of is because you are a bee.'”*
And then, after a long dry spell:
“‘Tut-tut, it looks like rain.'”*
Lots of rain and wind, washing another hive into ruin on the path.
