Storyline

Birds descend from dinosaurs who developed feathers. Those allow most of them to fly, which few other vertebrates can. Some birds gave up flying, like penguins, who specialize in diving and prove feather's fabulous insulating efficiency. Feathers are also key to courting, almost as varied as bird physiognomy and ways of solitary or social life almost all over the globe. Written by KGF Vissers

A Look At Some Very Weird Birds
29 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you're a bird-lover like me, you might want to know upfront you're not going to be seeing beautiful cardinals or the usual stuff, or even slightly unusual bird; you're going to see the really weird stuff!

Perhaps the strangest was the first bird show, this wild big hummingbird with extra wings and an amazing mating dance. You have to see this to believe it.

Meanwhile, we see the "Bearded Vulture" from Ethiopia; Chinstrap Penguins; huge flocks of some species which travel thousands of miles making only one pit-stop in Delaware Bay; odd "Birds Of Paradise" and other bizarre creatures.

As I said, seeing-is-believing in this episode! This isn't your normal session of "bird watching!"
