Bird is the word
7 February 2015 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

This colorful, old-timey documentary is found in HD resolution on the Rescuers Blu-ray, to tie in with their preferred mode of travel, and is a treat for those of you who prefer their documentaries shot on film with footage of, what was then, very exotic locations and animals. It might appear mundane to folks now who have the world at their fingertips online, but for enthusiasts of cinematography it is also a visual treat.

Sometimes the music gets a bit overbearing, and the narrator struggles to present a "story" at times, but it's seeing all the different species in their beautiful, unspoiled habitat.
