Woodpecker and Owl are neighbors but not friends. Owl does nothing but complain about Woodpecker's pecking, which interrupts his daytime sleeping. The feud between the two gets so big, and Owl's temper so foul, that the other forest anilmals try to intercede -- to no avail. Even a pair of hard-working beavers gnawing away at Owl's tree trunk won't get him to move. But Owl has an enormous change of heart when Woodpecker's bravery -- and his pecking -- save Owl's life.
