"Don't Be Afraid to Make Friends" is a Sesame Street song from an episode in the "New Mexico" saga.

Bob finds Big Bird staring wistfully at a group, wishing to be friends with them. But, he's too reluctant to go over since he's not from around the area. Bob sings the song, convincing him to be brave to make new friends. Big Bird takes his advice and goes to introduce himself...to the chickens.
