Mingo is heading out on his very first migration. Everything is going well until his family flies into a storm and Mingo crash-lands on a farm! The farm animals aren't sure what Mingo is. After determining that he is indeed an animal and not a golf club or lawn ornament, Mingo tries to remember who he is. But nothing seems right until one day he remembers! But poor Mingo's wing is still hurt and he can't fly to meet his family. Mingo trains to become strong enough to fly, but he still can't! His friends on the farm build him a plane and he flies home at last.
