Extraordinary Birds (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy)
Hummingbirds: Magic in the Air - Hummingbirds take extraordinary to a whole new level. They are the smallest warm-blooded creatures on the planet, but they are also among the fastest. With wings that beat up to 200 times every second, they are among nature's most accomplished athletes, the only birds able to hover, fly backwards, and even upside down. Because hummingbirds live their lives in fast forward, much of their fascinating world is typically lost to human perception. But using cameras able to capture over 500 images a second, the hummingbirds' magical world can finally be seen and appreciated. Watch as the birds display their elaborate mating rituals, showing off with nose dives that subject them to over ten G's of - enough to cause an experienced fighter pilot to black out! Academy Award winner F. Murray Abraham narrates. Rating: TV-G.
