"Nature: Birds" includes 2 programs from PBS' "Nature" series, produced in 1982. The first program is "Extraordinary Birds" (53 minutes), narrated by Diana Cardéa. "Extraordinary Birds" focuses on birds' amazing physical abilities and their symbiotic relationships with humans. There are some interesting tidbits of information in this documentary, but not much depth, and the narration is bland. The program begins with a trip to a village in southern India that 10,000 birds visit each year, traveling on the winds of the monsoons and signaling the coming of rain. Then it's to Scotland to observe the art of falconry, in which humans, dogs, and falcons work in concert to hunt grouse. Researchers in Arizona, USA study the consequences and opportunities posed by the tiny body size of hummingbirds, who beat their wings up to 200 times per second and migrate as far as 5,000 miles each. In Colorado, the "Pigeon Express" provides courier pigeons to white water rafting companies that need to get their film processed before their clients finish their rafting trips. Farmers in southern Florida use barn owls to control the rat infestations in sugar cane fields. And bird trainer Steve Martin prepares a new African Grey parrot for his debut show in Disney's Animal Kingdom, while "The Feathered Friends" pet therapy organization provides parrot companionship to the residents of a retirement home.

The second program is "Parrots: Look Who's Talking" (53 minutes), narrated by George Page. This program discusses the behavior of parrots in the wild and life among humans for those in captivity. "Parrots: Look Who's Talking" has something for confirmed parrot lovers as well as viewers new to the birds.

This DVD contains two great programs about birds from PBS' Nature series. "Parrots-- Look Who's Talking", narrated by George Page, explores the lives of parrots and their relationship to people. This is an older episode from the first few years of the series with beautiful photography and fine presentation. I wish that more of the older Nature programs were available since they are now seldom shown on television. "Extraordinary Birds" is another fine documentary about the contributions of birds to human lives and the natural world. Every bird lover should watch this DVD to enjoy the beauty of our feathered freinds.

Very entertaining. I showed the VHS version to my teenage biology students last year and they loved it. This DVD version will be even better.

I've been in the avian field now for 30yrs having experience with both wild & exotic pet species. And i've also owned and worked with a COUNTLESS number of parrot species and currently own two of my own. I also offer private behavioral consultations for folks with "problem birds". And all that said, i OFTEN plug this 2 disc DVD set produced by PBS on the show Nature to folks when i hold lectures on bird preservation & conservation. Particularly recommending it to those folks who are interested in learning more about our avian friends. And with F. Murray Abraham's vocal narration it's like the "icing on the cake" folks he is superb. So for those of you just starting out in the avian field perhaps wanting to make this a career to the simple aviculturist who enjoys keeping and raising captive species. I can't stress enough the importance of watching this video because you will surely take away much more knowledge on these beautiful and highly complex animals that i guarantee. And as i always say to my peers and those in my field; "Keep your eyes to the skies folks, because you never know what new species are awaiting to be discovered"....:)

"Parrots: Look Who's Talking" was my reason for purchasing this DVD, which is the best documentary to date on Psittacines. If you are a parrot lover and have not seen this great show -- I highly recommend it! Includes some great (albeit short) footage of Dr. Irene Pepperberg with Alex, the African Grey -- and spectacular footage of macaws, cockatoos, and other psittacines both in captivity and in the wild. Simply put -- a must see, must own for parrot lovers everywhere! Amazing there are not more documentaries out there on parrots, but you'll love this one for sure!
