Off Topic……Two films about birding

without comments

The Central Park Effect.

This quote from the film (starting at 1:01 on the video clip below) addresses a frequent stereotype aimed at those who enjoy this pastime.

The Big Year. It got poor reviews, but I really loved it. (I hear most real birders hated it).

Technical Difficulties

without comments
