Deciduous Decision

Ears perked when bunny heard the hullabaloo. Standing by the edge of the deciduous forest, hops from the burrow hole, a fortissimo crescendo flared-up. Had a white bellbird moved into a neighboring tree? Bunny turned. A fluttering aria rose over the calm twill, punctuating the easy flow of woodland morning conversation.

No, this was no ordinary oration. A guttural accompaniment joined the rich accordion-like symphony. Huffing similar to a meerkat made the percussion. Bunny twitched. Should he hop over? But, Bunny knew to mind his own whiskers. Besides, not all animals in the forest were bred like bunnies.
