Homer, a drawling country pigeon, calls on his girl Mazie, but she gives him the cold shoulder when a squadron of carrier pigeons flies over. Homer resolves to win her favor by joining the Pigeon Patrol. Try as he does, he can’t win the grade because he hasn’t enough chest. Trudging home, he witnesses an aerial combat between a carrier pigeon and a Japanese vulture. When the pigeon crashes to the ground, Homer volunteers to carry the vital message through. He battles and defeats the vulture, delivers the message, wins the girl, and raises a family of bright young fledglings for the Pigeon Patrol.
