52 The Fox and the Woodpecker 32. A woodpecker lived and dwelt in an oak. It had woven itself a little nest and laid three eggs and hatched out three chicks. A fox took to visiting it. Knock, knock with its big tail on the damp, old oak: “Woodpecker, woodpecker! Climb down here from that oak. I have to bend that oak‘sechikhichiki.’”1 “Oh, foxy! You haven’t let me hatch out even one baby.”“Oh, woodpecker ! Toss down one of them and I’ll teach him to be a smith!” The woodpecker threw one down, and the fox—from bush to bush, from grove to grove—and she ate it. She came again to the woodpecker and knock, knock with her big tail on the damp old oak: “Woodpecker, woodpecker! Climb right down from that oak. I have to bend that oak‘sechikhichiki.’” “Oh, foxy! You haven’t let me hatch out even one baby.” Oh, woodpecker! Toss one down to me and I’ll teach him to be a cobbler .” The woodpecker threw one down and the fox—from bush to bush, from grove to grove—and she ate it. Again the fox came and knock, knock with her big tail on the damp old oak: “Woodpecker, woodpecker! Climb right down from that oak, I have to bend that oak‘sechikhichiki.’” “Oh, foxy! You haven’t let me hatch out even one baby.” “Oh, woodpecker! Toss one down to me and I’ll teach him to be a tailor.” The woodpecker threw it down and the fox ran from bush to bush, from grove to grove, and she ate it. 1.  No known meaning. ...
