The Fisherman and the Bird

Story Summary

Rico has lived and fished alone since being jilted in his youth. But one day, Rico discovers that a pair of beautiful birds have built a nest at the top of his mast. He is ready to destroy the nest so that he can sail, but the local school teacher convinces Rico of the rarity of the birds and the importance of letting them nest. Begrudgingly, Rico lets the birds nest and is meanwhile transformed by their beauty and the friendship of the villagers.
