Varpunen loves flying more than anything! Most sunny days, she can be found climbing to the very tops of the trees, so she can throw herself into the air from the highest point. She loves to feel the wind rush through her hair as she dives and spins and summersaults through the air! Many of her closest companions are the birds who frequent the forest nearer the pond. Sometimes, Varpunen races with the dragonflies, skimming and darting along the surface of the water. During the summer, Varpunen prefers to live in a little nest that she built in a lovely tree. She added a little roof and walls to keep the rain out. The inside is snug and warm, just like a bird nest. When the weather turns cool, Varpunen flies south like her bird friends. The trip is very long and tiring though. There are times in which she hitches a ride with a larger bird. The birds don’t seem to mind. Varpunen weighs practically nothing and has lots of interesting stories to share.
