|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a collection of feathers and a poster showing various birds -- all on loan from a local museum. In the kitchen, he shows the feathers and asks viewers to help him match them to each of the four birds on the poster.
After Mister Rogers sings Peace and Quiet, Mr. McFeely stops by with a wooden parrot and a video showing the perspective of a bird flying through the air.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri is talking to King Friday about X the Owl's offer to teach flying lessons but the king prefers to "leave flying to pilots and birds." Appearing high upon the castle, Prince Tuesday expresses his desire to fly.
At the Museum-Go-Round, Lady Elaine Fairchilde shows off her new hat with a propeller and announces to Handyman Negri that she will also be teaching flying lessons. Moving on to the tree, Handyman Negri watches as Prince Tuesday receives his first flying lesson from X the Owl.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers watches a video of magician David Copperfield performing a flying trick. Visiting Mr. Copperfield in his dressing room at a nearby theater, Mister Rogers listens closely as Mr. Copperfield uses a rope to teach him a basic magic trick.
