This story features a university biology professor-- a meek sort of man who takes great enjoyment in watching birds. He travels to various countries and along the way he has been framed by an international thief named the Jaguar. The Simons are willing to help him, because using common sense, they can tell he is not a criminal mastermind-- something the police do not seem to realize.

It's kind of strange that Town doesn't detect a perfect frame. At one point half-way into the story, there's a scene where Rick and A.J. tell him this is all just too pat. I don't think Town would dismiss their concerns so quickly. He wouldn't buy everything so neatly pointing to the biology professor's guilt. His own instincts would tell him the Simons are right and the guy is obviously being set up.

There are several other guest characters mixed into the action. One is a woman who cozies up to the professor and later posts his bail when he's arrested. There's also an over-extended heiress who reports her jewels as having been stolen which A.J. learns is not true at all, since she still has her diamond earrings and is probably in cahoots with the real Jaguar. Plus we have an agent from out of state who's been tailing the professor.

The last scene, which takes place in an abandoned building and involves an owl, is certainly memorable. I think fans of the series will enjoy this episode as much as I did.
