When Kanopi evolves into Harvespik, its little forelimbs grow into massive scythe-like claws, which it uses to defend itself and its community from predators. Harvespik boast a high degree of intelligence, rumored to be almost equivalent to human. Though they outgrow their tree hollow nests upon evolution, they gain the intellect necessary to build new homes from branches sawed off with their claws, solve logical and logistical problems regarding their social structures and harvest schedules, and produce records with diagrams and pictographs carved into the bark of trees.
Their brainpower makes possible their most iconic behavior: berry farming. Entire sections of the jungle may be composed of berry trees grown to the Harvespik's specifications. Researchers are advised to tread carefully where berries are abundant, for Harvespik does not take kindly to thieves. They guard their berry farms ferociously, for they are so adapted to growing their own food that they have lost the foraging prowess of their pre-evolutions. They also viciously protect Kanopi to ensure the success of the next generation.
Harvespik are meticulous in the care of their crop. Their claws are good not only for driving off intruders, but also for carving irrigation ditches, pruning dead or diseased branches, or harvesting large bunches of berries. Additionally, they can transport large quantities of nectar, juice, or water in their abdomens, which distend to hold the additional fluid. Their wings are strong enough to lift them even as they haul quantities of nectar that weigh eight times as much as they do. Though a full Harvespik abdomen is a coveted find amongst Buzzwole, engorged transporters are often accompanied by unencumbered bodyguards that quickly dispatch attackers with Aerial Ace and Play Rough.
It is believed that Harvespik is developing a proto-civilization. The presence of language and agriculture and the development of numerous uses for their forelimbs shows great potential for more complex society in the future. Tool use can be seen in Harvespik's carefully blended berry juice mixes, which are imbibed specifically for their healing and ability-enhancing properties for activities that range from healing sick or injured flock members to accelerating the growth and evolution of Kanopi when Harvespik populations dwindle to unsafe levels. Continued observation of complex behaviors is highly important, especially in understanding their communication. Drawings or photographs of their glyphs are to be recorded whenever possible.
