Belle is an osprey -- a large fish-eating bird. She's born early one summer on Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts in a nest her parents built. She learns to fly, to land, and to catch fish on her own. It's not easy. Then one day in autumn, Belle feels a pull to the south. It's time for her to go--tofly away from the only home she's known and migrate for the first time. So she sets off alone to travel 4,000 miles to South America.
