For the Birds is the first half-episode of the fifty-third episode of Curious George.
In the Country, the Man with the Yellow Hat cannot drive fast enough for Curious George, to return to play with Bill's Bunnies, but upon their arrival, Bill loads up Bill's Bunnies: Fuzzy, Whitey, Brownie, Spotty, Black Ears, Cotton Tail, and Herbert Nenninger, into a cage to place upon his Mother's station wagon to drive off to visit with Bill's Grandmother.
And, after Bill tells Curious George, "See-ya!," Curious George accompanies the Man with the Yellow Hat to Ada and Luke's General Store, at which Curious George purchases a large bag of bird seed because those small boxes empty too quickly for his purpose.
Now, back in the yard at the Country residence, Curious George eagerly fills a birdhouse with a scoop of birdseed, for three birds to enter to enjoy, but Jumpy Squirrel climbs onto the trunk of the tree to spring over into the birdhouse to hoard the birdseed, leaving the birdhouse empty. But Curious George cannot seem to figure where all of the birdseed has gone, and so he refills it with a second scoop, which soon ends up missing, as Jumpy Squirrel again returns to empty the feeder.
Well, Curious George again refills the birdhouse for a third time, and the next morning, Curious George eagerly peers from his upstairs window, but only to watch Jumpy Squirrel's chasing away the birds, and so Curious George chases away Jumpy Squirrel and moves the bird feeder far from the tree trunk onto a long limb, which doesn't work, and then onto the laundry line accessible from his bedroom window.
But Jumpy Squirrel is able to climb the exterior of the residence onto Curious George's window ledge and onto the clothes line to hoard additional birdseed, and Curious George stands at odds with Jumpy Squirrel about such activity, especially after the Man with the Yellow Hat goes to Renkins' Farm, and Curious George remains at hand to try to think of another way to prevent Jumpy Squirrel from removing the birdseed from the birdhouse intended for the three hungry birds.
So, Curious George lowers the feeder onto the tree, to scrutinize closely so that Jumpy Squirrel is not able to leap onto the birdhouse, but he tries anyway, and causes the birdhouse to fall to the ground. But does Curious George know that Jumpy Squirrel is sharing the spoils with his three squirrel friends? And what could Curious George do to convince Jumpy Squirrel that he intends the birdseed to be served "For the Birds?"
