In Skyward Sword, my Loftwing didn't appear when Zelda pushed me off the ledge. I know I have to find out what happened to it now, but I have no idea where to go. Someone suggested asking the people in the plaza where to look, but no one there even mentions my Loftwing or anything. I am mostly running around in circles at this point, and I end up talking to the same people over and over.
What am I missing? Where do I need to go to find my bird?
