He and another owlet Nut Beam fly with the Weather Interpretation Chaw to see if they are suitable for the class. Due to a mild tropical storm, the Chaw and the owlets must find find refuge in the Spirit Woods. He and Nut Beam are scared of scrooms, making their stay more difficult as Spirit Woods is famous for their supposed scroom encounters.
