“Competitive bird watching" may sound like an oxymoron, but it makes perfect sense to the participants of the World Series of Birding. Hundreds of birders convene for one day each spring to see which team can identify the most bird species in 24 hours. Equal parts scavenger hunt, science expedition, and endurance test, this award-winning documentary takes you along for the raucous ride, with all of its camaraderie, competitiveness, and caffeine. It may well be the very first nature documentary comedy. View a photo gallery and watch video clips online.
