Memorable Silly Symphony, about birds in the Springtime
21 September 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is very sweet and memorable. The animation is stunning and the music is lovely, though the chirping can give you a headache. The title character is adorable, so sweet and likable. The other characters, including the very scary serpent, are all well done.

Birds In the Spring is very thin in plot, however the animation and most of the music compensates, as well as the title character.

It really has this sentimental value to it, and very sweet and nostalgic. While not my favourite silly symphony ever, and it does have its flaws, it is definitely memorable, and worth the look. 8/10 Bethany Cox
