COLD OPEN
Big Bird and Gina are playing jump-rope with Rameek, when all of a sudden, they hear something falling from the sky. Is it a bird? A plane? It's ... a bird, who's fine, "except for the excruciating headache."

SCENE 1
The bird, a purple-tufted Fluter-tooter named Floyd, introduces himself to the group. He explains that Fluter-tooters are known for their graceful flying (but not so good at landing) and their happy song ... which, at the moment, he doesn't feel like singing because he's sad. He's been looking all around for a new home, preferably one with an Opple-dopple tree (as seen in a flashback), where he and his family used to live and sing happily, until some construction workers cleared the Opple-dopple forest to build a shopping center. He hasn't even seen any Fluter-tooters since said tragedy, and thinks he must be the last of them.

SCENE 1
cont'd
Gina tells Floyd that he can stay on Sesame Street, and build himself a new nest there. Unfortunately, there are no Opple-dopple trees on Sesame Street, so Big Bird offers to have him stay in his own nest. This makes Floyd want to sing his happy song, which is just as loud and raucous as his sad song.

SCENE 2
Floyd likes it in Big Bird's nest, even though it's not the same as a Fluter-tooter nest - it's hard, only on one level, and doesn't have a roof. Rameek gives him a pillow and an umbrella, which helps Floyd feel more at home. He now feels like singing his loud, raucous happy song again, all day and night. Will Big Bird survive?

The answer is yes! Gina arrives with some good news: she has a friend that works at a wild animal refuge, who may be able to find a new home for Floyd, even with more Fluter-tooters. Floyd agrees to check it out, and Big Bird is relieved that he won't have to live with that loud singing anymore.

SCENE 3
Big Bird, Rameek, Floyd, and Gina arrive at the Massapequa Wildlife Preserve, where they see many species of birds. They meet Gina's friend Jane, a ranger, who gives them a tour of the land. They see some ducks (mallards), a heron, an ibis, and some shorebirds. Floyd still wants an Opple-dopple tree, which there are none of here, but Jane still offers to help him build a nest suitable for a Fluter-tooter - they've done it before for other birds, as she points out. After seeing these custom-built birdhouses, Floyd has one more question: "When are we gonna get started?"

SCENE 5
The house is finished, and Floyd loves it! He immediately enters it and starts singing his happy song, which attracts the attention of some more Fluter-tooters, and before long, Floyd has some new friends. He announces the sponsors, and directs Felix Fluter-tooter to the hot tub.

A special end credit sequence follows (as ending credits often aired after season premieres), with the credits rolling over footage of birds in the sanctuary as the standard harmonica music plays.
