The Birds of Paradise
« on: December 19, 2012, 12:10:49 AM »
I heard about a new documentary called The Birds of Paradise in science class. Does anyone else know about it? I looked it up and apparently there is a book that goes with it too.

A believe it's by David Attenborough.  I've never seen it or read the book, but it's supposed to be good.  I do recall hearing though that some of the footage was the same as in Planet Earth and Life.

Or, maybe you're thinking of this National Geographic production? WINGED SEDUCTION: BIRDS OF PARADISE

There is also this recent National Geographic book, Birds of Paradise: Revealing the World's Most Extraordinary Birds, although I'm not sure that the book and documentary are explicitly connected.

Yep, those are the ones I was talking about. And yes, the book does go with the documentary.
