"As the troop moves from feeding site to feeding site, the core group settles into the best feeding spot (generally a good tree) and eats first."

Why is it wrong to put "a" here?:

Hi,

"As the troop moves from feeding site to feeding site, the core group settles into the best feeding spot (generally a good tree) and eats first."

from feeding site to feeding site

Why is it wrong to put "a" here?:
from feeding site to a feeding site


Let me explain how I think about this.

Here, 'feeding site' is a a very general reference. So, the structure is 'from general reference to general reference'. You can't just switch the second general reference to be less general.

To put it another way, 'a feeding site' refers to one feeding site, but 'feeding site' refers to feeding sites in general.

Best wishes, Clive
