Let Wingtip be your guide on the Scavenger Hunt Wingtip
Wingtip left the nest a little early -- he fell out. Making his own way has made him streetwise and down-to-earth. He believes in himself. He loves to have a good time, especially with his jungle friends, who are like a family to him.

Wingtip is a big picture bird -- he provides an aerial view of safety. In his junk drawer you'll find ticket stubs, candy wrappers, cassettes and CDs, and sunglasses. (Actually, his whole house is a junk drawer!) Wingtip's favorite music: jazz and blues.

Wingtip's hobbies: travel, music, playing the harmonica, dabbling in the stork market, and watching nature shows and cartoons.
