Renowned British natural history filmmaker Sir David Attenborough hosts The
Life of Birds by David Attenborough, a 10-part series about these
conquerors of the air. Nearly three years in the making, the series takes a close-up look at
how birds have evolved from prehistoric times and at the current battle many
species face against extinction. Individual episodes look at the adaptation of
feathers in birds' evolution, flight mechanics, meat-eating birds and the
challenges of finding a mate and raising a family.
