Very good documentary about the importance of green areas for birds and how we need to connect with nature for our own well-being.

A beautiful movie, powered by a love of life, of nature and especially a love of birds. Who would have thought that so many beautiful birds touch down in Central Park during the course of a year?

Wonderfully documented film about both the birds and the mammals (people) who love them in Central Park year round. It resonated well with me, as a birder for the past 3 years. It DOES feel rather runny to tell people I bird, or which birds we've seen, when they get all glassy eyed; this film sheds light on WHY urbanites flock to see spring migrants and WHY we need managed green space around the country. Nicely done.

Delightful from beginning to end. Spans the 4 seasons in Central Park and the birds that migrate there throughout the year.

This was a delightful video to watch. Beautiful colors mixed with compelling human stories about bird watching in New York.
