Episode 5 – Birds

Preview

Birds are supremely adaptable, capable not only of flying at phenomenal speeds and covering great distances, but of displaying a murderous nature, running on water in pursuit of love and even of building intricate structures. Using aerial camera techniques, Life flies with the birds and explores their incredible diversity and behaviour: dodging the piratical frigate birds, dancing with a thousand flamingos in the lakes of Africa and witnessing the extraordinary displays of western grebes and bowerbirds as they attempt to attract a mate.
