Nudge wakes up and freaks out because Fang isn't beside her. It seems that all the flock members are disappearing on her these days.
As she crawls out of the cave, though, she sees the hawks flying in a beautiful formation—and then she sees one that's bigger than all the rest. Fang is flying with the hawks as if he's a part of their flock.

They paw through the food and stuff it into their jackets, talking about how they have to go find Max. After all, she wouldn't just leave them on their own—she must have run into some kind of trouble.
