One problem that runs throughout the story is the problem of the owls being threatened by the construction of the new restaurant. Through the efforts of Mullet Fingers, Roy, and Beatrice, the construction project is hampered and delayed long enough to prove that the owls are really there and that there is a problem with the paperwork regarding the construction. Another problem concerns Dana's bullying of Roy. This problem comes to a beautiful end when Dana is framed for the construction site vandalism. This brings up another problem: the vandalism that was happening. Officer Delinko knew about it, as did Roy, but nobody could figure out how it was happening or who was doing it. Roy eventually figures out that it is Mullet Fingers vandalizing the construction site in order to help protect the owls.
