A Massachusetts hermit man is seen with his bird and squirrel friends.
Titles read: "Queer Pals. The friendship of man for bird and beast has surely not been more charmingly exemplified - than by this mixed family."
New Bedford, Massachusetts, United States of America.
Various shots of "New Bedford's hermit", Oliver P Tripp, sitting in a garden with birds and squirrels all around him. Oliver plays a flute or whistle as a squirrel runs about his shoulders and hangs on the end of it. He feeds birds with a spoon. A squirrel takes a nut from his pocket and from Oliver's mouth.
Note: sprightly 'squirrelly' music throughout.
