Why is oda necessary? The position of the tree isn't stated.

It is not as much about the position of the tree as it is about the action (flying) that will surely end at its stated target, the tree. Hungarian has this way of expressing this completeness, which is mostly missing from, or expressed differently in, English.

Shouldn't this be.......The big, colourful bird flies 'there' onto the tall, colourful tree?
