Winged Migration

Just saw this DVD. This is the result of a four year study of migratory birds throughout the world. The photography is AMAZING (you're basically flying as one of the flock) and the soundtrack very well done also.

As an added astronomy bonus, at the 1 hr mark, there is a brief view at a passing flock from inside the dome of the Pic du Midi Observatory in the Pyreneans mountains (southwest corner of France). I believe the scope seen is either the 1 or 2 meter reflector.
