Birders: The Central Park Effect reveals the extraordinary array of wild birds who grace Manhattan's celebrated patch of green, and the equally colorful New Yorkers who schedule their lives around the rhythms of migration. Author Jonathan Franzen, an idiosyncratic trombone technician, and a septuagenarian bird-tour leader are among the lively cast of characters in this charming, lyrical documentary that transports the viewer to the dazzling, hidden world of America's most famous park.
"The best film about birding that I have ever seen." --Victor Emanual, Legendary Birder
"Shows the non-birders among us what we're missing out on. And it's pretty cool." --Ren McKnight, GQ

It think this would be a great movie to show to your friends or loved ones who don't understand your passion for birds. Although sometimes I do keeps "lists" of birds I see, I am not the type of birder in The Big Year that obsesses over numbers or a rare find. I just enjoy learning more about birds, nature & enjoying the great outdoors!
I highly recommend this movie.
We enjoyed the birds, the people, and the park. We loaned the DVD to a friend, and she liked it too.
Would non-bird watchers like it? I don't know.
If you are looking for a gift for a bird watching friend, I highly recommend this DVD. It is much more entertaining than strictly bird-centered DVD's ("the birds of..." Or "hummingbirds" "hawks" etc).
