A hungry Weasel attacks a flock of birds living on the last standing tree. The birds in a canopy are trying to keep the tree in balance, all the while the Weasel is persistently trying to climb up its trunk. The flock is amused by its failed attempts. The merriment causes a moment of inattention and Weasel immediately takes advantage of it. The flock is already mourning the lost maestro, when he finally drags himself back up. When the flock realises Weasel loves fruit, they generously cover it in a pile. Relieved flock forget their main task – the unstable tree tumbles down and the birds' home is gone. Suddenly, trunk starts moving. Thankful Weasel is lifting up the tree and manages to get it upright. Now, they are better off being friends.
