What he doesn't realize is that the pole he's chosen to scratch with is the home of two little birds--and he accidentally shakes them right out of their house The birds decide to help Ernest find an alternative scratching post, leading the trio on an amusing barnyard adventure and resulting in a strong friendship between the three.
