The Life of BirdsAnother landmark series from the produces of Blue Planet: Seas of Life. This is the definitive series on the most colorful, popular and perfectly adapted creatures on Earth.

The Life Of Birds traverses the globe, exploring 42 countries and examining over 300 species using infrared, slow motion and computer enhanced effects.

David Attenborough, one of the world's foremost naturalists, hosts an extraordinary exploration into the secret lives of these magnificent creatures.

Amazing footage, you'll be blown away. I've watched this series several times, as it runs on PBS on a semi-regular basis, and I always seem to see something new.

This series is never boring, is an informative look at the lives of birds in every aspect of their lives across this planet, and is beautifully filmed and presented... A must see!

Such a good documentary was shot in low resolution with standard aspect ratio.
Can you imagine if this documentary is in HD?
I bought the set of this video from barnes and noble.
I was surprise to see such low quality dvd.

It's sad to think that this bird thinks these are just other natural interesting sounds of his environment. Poor clueless little guy :(

Another great series Valtko to have. Birds are truly amazing, I remember watching a crow going to town on a wasps nest that was in a rain gutter. It was beheading some and eating some till the nest was gone. I was watching it from my bedroom window one day . The only thing is when I see a large flock I fleetingly tend to think of a movie by Alfred Hitchcock called "The Birds".

This was a wonderful documentary. It must be a few years old, however, as the Whooping Cranes of Idaho are now all dead as they didn't form pairs as others feared would happen with too much human contact. As of Nov. 17th 2009, the whole population of both captive and wild Whooping Cranes was only 534. It's been a bad few years for the Whooping Cranes, with high mortality rates and low fledging numbers, and the captive population is aging without much reproduction as well. I sure hope they hold on, as I do so love birds, especially the Whooping Cranes.

I`m always so blown away by david attenborough docs, no matter how many times i`ve already seen them. Birds are especially fascinating as I am owned by a parrot - or as I call him - my feathery dinosaur master!
