Mother bird sets out early in the day to look for food. She tells Little Birdie to stay put till she gets back. Their nest is in the woods near a city.
Little Birdie is too curious to just wait. He wants to try out his wings. It is hard at first with just one lesson yesterday. But then it gets easier as he spreads his wings.
But wait, where is Mommy? Suddenly Little Birdie realizes he is no longer in the woods. He is lost. As he wanders around the city alley, he meets up with a hungry cat.
Cat then says to birdie-“That is enough feathers for now. We are going to take a short cut.”
Little Birdie pauses, looking at the cat with doubt and confusion.
Little Birdie, “I don’t understand. Now my mommy will never find me if I take this road.”
Cat replies to Little Birdie. “Relax, the road up this alley leads to my place next to the woods. You will hear the sound of your mommy’s tweets from there.”
Little Birdie then strolls down the bushes with the Cat. As he looks back, he sees the big road getting smaller. There is nobody around. He is suddenly fearful but then he rejoices at the sight of the woods ahead.
Cat is happy that he now has birdie all to himself with no one around to rescue him.
But birdie can still fly away if he tries to grab him. So he comes up with a plan.
Cat returns with birdie’s food in his mouth. He wants birdie to come closer before he drops it down. .
Cat: “Come on over. Don’t just stand there.”
Little Birdie rushes forward. Just as fast, the Cat growls and extends his claws to grab Little Birdie.
Lucky for Little Birdie, he is able to hop back in time. Using his new-found trick, he swoops up into the air with his wings and flies away.
