To show their appreciation, James and Polly decide to have a dinner for Squanto and his tribe. Just as it looks like the big feast is going to consist solely of corn, potatoes and cranberry sauce, James and Cotton return from the woods with three strange birds that, when stuffed and cooked, make the meal a huge success.
