4. Digital Encyclopedia of South American Hummingbirds

Carlo Ferraro, one of the world's most prolific filmmakers, loves to film birds in the wild, and he especially loves hummingbirds. In this program, the author of Venezuela: Paradise for Birds, presents a digital encyclopedia of his painstaking efforts to capture all the beauty of South American hummingbirds, offering fascinating close ups and slow-motion shots. Here we are introduced to a variety of hummingbirds with names and portrait shots; we view them feeding on flowers, and see their mastery of flight thanks to masterful cinematography; also we learn about their early reproduction strategies, which includes footage of newly born chicks, as well as fledging and final reproduction stages; then the final episode is the fight for territory around artificial feeders. 2011 JSCA 50 min.
