Product Description

Hummingbirds are the smallest warm-blooded creatures on the planet. They are also among the fastest. With wings that beat up to 200 times every second, they are among nature s most accomplished athletes, the only birds able to hover, fly backwards and upside down. Using cameras able to capture over 500 images a second, the hummingbirds magical world can finally be seen and appreciated. Amazing footage shows these little powerhouses as are far more than nectar gatherers. Watch as they display their elaborate mating rituals! These tiny marvels will dazzle and delight bird watchers all over the world. Academy Award winner F. Murray Abraham narrates.

I bought this Dvd for my father and he loved it. I went home to watch it with him and I must admit the camera stills are stunning. If you are a humming bird enthusiast I would highly recommend this product.

We watched part of this video on PBS-tv....and then ordered it on Amazon.com

The photography is UNBELIEVABLE, and we really got an education on hummingbirds.

Did you know they flap their little wings in a figure-8 formation?

Awesome video!

Every year my wife and I await the coming of our backyard guests. Although they virtually dissappear during the maiting and hatching season, they come back to visit with us for the rest of the summer. We usually hang several feeders around our deck and enjoy their actions until early October. When we saw this program on PBS, we knew it was a must for our library and took advantage of the DVD from Amazon.It helps us to better understand the life of our little friends.

This is a beautiful video of many many types of hummingbirds, and really aesthetically pleasing. great video work - high res and slow speed. recommend for anyone interested in nature. good for kids, lots of slow moving pictures --- my 2 yr old kid goes around saying "birdie" and can recognize the one that comes in our yard.

I first saw this video in Ecuador where I was birding and quickly falling in love with these marvelous creatures. I was afraid it would no longer be available, having been shown on PBS some time ago, but I was thrilled to find it and be able to buy another for a gift. It is almost unbelievable to watch when you realize just how fast these birds move. Wonderful!!

My wife and I love hummingbirds! We have three kinds that visit our feeders, Anna's, Black-chinned and Rufous. They are a joy to watch. Until we watched this video, some of their behavior was a mystery to us. We had assumed we were watching territorial disputes between the males and courting between the male and females. We were right! This video captures some amazing footage of hummingbirds doing some amazing things. There are scenes of hummingbirds in their natural habitat and in gardens. There is one scene in particular of many, many hummingbirds in one garden feeding that you've got to see. I wish the video was longer but based on the Behind the Scenes featurette, it was difficult to make.
My one and only gripe about this video is the ridiculous assumptions of how the THEORY of evolution influenced these beautiful creatures in their behavior and development. There is no question that micro-evolution exists but the kind of evolution that is discussed in this video is absurd. At any rate, this doesn't ruin the video at all and it's just my opinion. For any hummingbird lover or anyone interested in birds, this is a FANTASTIC video!
