It's good and has many good video shots but they spend too much time talking about making the video rather than showing us the birds. There is also more focus on the crows dying than I want to see for enjoyment.
They put tracking transmitters on crows and then recovered the transmitters when the birds were killed, presumably by other birds. I'm not in favor of this technology at all.
Since I've retired I frequent a local restaurant for lunch several times a week. I always get my lunch to go and eat in my car at a local park. I feed the birds after I eat and started to notice how quickly the crows arrived. They've gotten bolder and are now landing on my car and looking through the windshield at me. It's become obvious they recognized my car and are arriving as soon as they see it. The interesting part is they accepted me as a friendly food source except when I wear my sun glasses.
Thanks to my daughter and this DVD I've come to enjoy crows for the interesting creatures they are. Their personalities have surfaced and I've enjoyed their antics as they watch me watching them.
They won't go head to head with the sea gulls, but more often than not can out smart them to get to the food first.
I highly recommend this DVD.
We have a large murder of crows who inhabit our mountain property. After watching this film, I am observing the same behavior patterns with them. Many of them seem to recognize one or the other, or both of us, and greet us in various ways. They can be noisy when upset, but we've grown to love both the crows and ravens with whom we share this planet.
Oh...to clarify, since one reviewer had it wrong, a "murder" is what one calls a group of crows.
This documentary was highly informative and really helped me understand that crows are highly intelligent animals worthy of being observed and preserved. I would recommend this film to those interested in the life of crows. 5 stars! Very intriguing.
They particularly like french fries (preferably w/ketchup) and pasta (w/red sauce). (Of course they like meat but we are vegetarians so they're mostly out of luck in that regard. Like some children, they're not big on eating vegetables!)
This is a good film to introduce people to crows' intelligence and ability, and especially to let people know that animals in general also have intelligence of their own. Once upon a time (as virtually all fairy tales/legends tell) we human beings had much closer relationships with the animals we share this earth with. We lost much of that when we moved from agrarian to industrialized societies. But the animals are still there, and still willing to listen and relate to/with us - if we are interested in giving them the chance.
This might be a great film, along with the Hutto one on turkeys, for a teen who may be interested in pursuing a career in wildlife studies.
