|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a painting of a tree covered in snow. He shows that when you look closely, three birds can be seen hidden in the tree. Mister Rogers then shares a film about cardinals.
After the film, Mister Rogers signs Everybody's Fancy before Mrs. Shiono stops by to demonstrate her origami talents. In the kitchen, Mrs. Shiono shows various pieces that she has made from paper and makes a puppet for Mister Rogers.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri is helping X the Owl prepare for a visit from Cousin Mary Owl. Together they have made several small birds which emerge from X's door with welcome greetings written on them in various languages.
Growing tired of waiting for his cousin's arrival, X joins Lady Aberlin on a visit to Southwood where they learn that Betty Okonak Templeton and James Michael Jones have adopted a baby girl -- Carrie Dell.
Back the tree, X is disappointed to find that he was not present for the arrival of Cousin Mary Owl. To help him feel better, Cousin Mary steps away and returns to the tree, pretending to arrive for the first time so that X can surprise her with the birds he made.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers visits Brockett's Bakery to see a display of craft birds made of various materials -- ceramic, paper mache, wood, and even dough.
