As a girl takes a walk in the fields among the trees, a black feather touches her, turning her into a crow. Her journey in the air gives the crow girl a new perspective on her house, family, and the horses below. She glides over a pond, the playground, and a field of sunflowers, and she builds a nest in a cottonwood. A storm and hearing her mother call encourage her to fly home, and she lands on the windowsill: I wanted to be inside with my family. As she flies from the window, a feather drops from one of her wings, and, when it touches the ground, she changes back into herself. She tells her grandfather about her day and is surprised when he takes a black feather from his pocket. The story ends with him saying, Someday- you will know when it is the right time for you to fly.
