Mister Bird lives in a big forest along with his hardworking friends, who are all happy and content with building their nests and singing in the choir. However, Mister Bird finds this kind of life too boring and ordinary, so he leaves the forest to experience something different. He tries being a pillow, a hedgehog, a snowman, a carrot, and a fox, but in the end, he finds that a bird’s life isn’t that bad, after all!
