Every day, Ellen looked wistfully at this scene. Once a year she really had an urge to scale the waterfall. It was during that time of year that she felt the most self conscious about looking different than all the other birds in her tree. Finally, Ellen asked Boris the eagle why she felt the way she did. Boris laughed and explained that Ellen was a salmon and it was natural for her to feel the way she did. Ellen didn't think to ask why she was in a tree with birds.
