This from GrrlScientist, a respected bird biologist based in the USA posted on a birding forum I belong to ... for those who are interested in FLAP ...


I ran across the official trailer for the most amazing, and in many ways, heart-wrenching, film about neotropical songbirds. The Messenger follows migratory songbirds, and documents the human-created dangers they face as they go on their journeys. Here's the official trailer:

Here's a video that gives you a behind-the-scenes look at how some of the truly stunning footage of flying songbirds was captured on film:

This award-winning film is now playing is select theatres across the US and Canada, as listed here:

Loved this video!
Nature is beautiful!
When you step outside, take a deep breath, close your eyes, and listen to what Mother Nature has given us to enjoy for free.

The birds are amazing of course, but that nest is a work of art.
