|'The Bird Who Knew
by Brian Clemens
(Based upon a story by Alan Pattillo)
Steed fancies pigeons - Emma gets the bird
Sources indicate that an agent named Captain Crusoe is taking aerial pictures of a top-secret military establishment and then leaking the information to the other side, but no one knows what the Captain looks like. Steed and Mrs. Peel follow the clues to a bird exhibition and a modelling studio, and soon discover that Captain Crusoe is actually a very intelligent parrot. However, but the bird has gone missing, and every time Steed and Mrs. Peel attempt to look for it, things get very complicated...
