Bird enthusiast and high school teacher Ron Spencer has seen his life fall down all around him: his students don't respect him, his ex-wife has finally decided to throw him out, and worst of all, his daughter is drifting away from his teachings as a 'birder' toward more modern methods. When he loses out on his much-desired job as Head of Ornithology at the National Park to younger, hipper rival Floyd Hawkins, he decides he's not going down without a fight...but he's going to need a little help. Ron unexpectedly bumps into Ben, a pot smoking slacker, and former student. The two quickly forge an unlikely friendship, bonding over their mutual hatred of Floyd. They set out on a haphazard campaign to take Floyd down and restore Ron's bird watching legacy.
