Doug is enchanted by the water birds of Gothic Valley—but can he save them from the cruel forces of nature?
Doug is visiting his grandfather, Whispering Bill, in the Colorado Rockies for the summer. Bill is the only prospector left in the ghost town of Gothic, once a center of gold mining, and he hopes to pass his knowledge along to his young grandson.
Meanwhile, the water ouzels have begun to return to the valley. Doug is fascinated as he watches a pair of ouzels, Cinclus and Teeter, building their nest and laying eggs. But the nest is too close to the water’s edge. Can Doug protect the birds and their brood from the forces of nature?
