I’m in bed watching Nature on PBS. It’s a show about migrating birds in Europe. The photography is amazing with many fly along shots.
EARTHFLIGHT invites us to see the world from a bird’s perspective with state-of-the-art technology and sophisticated camera techniques that take viewers on a breathtaking aerial adventure over six continents. It took series producer John Downer and his team four years to film more than 100 bird species in 40 different countries, capturing amazing viewpoints that have never been seen before.
If I would have watched the show on mute I would have enjoyed it more! Much of the copy was written with anthropomorphic references. Bird behavior was described as if the birds were human. They are not.
Birds do not experience human emotion. They don’t.
I know it’s cute to hear about birds practicing their dancing or fixing a nest to impress a late arriving spouse, but that’s just wrong. It takes what should be an educational experience unavailable until now and cheapens it.
