Pinkerton's young owner has to identify different birds and mammals for homework. So, she and her mother set off for the woods with Pinkerton and Rose. There they run into a group from the Hunting Academy, out in search of the noble fox. The craziness begins when the hunters mistake Rose for a fox, and charge after her. And where is Pinkerton? He is making friends with a red bird while drifting overhead in a hot air balloon.
