EarthFlight by John Downer

EarthFlight by John Downer shows incredible images of birds in flight from the birds' point of view. The makers travelled around the world using imprinted birds, ultralight planes, and tiny cameras to capture what it's like to be in the sky with flying birds for a BBC program.

The images are incredible and the text interesting. However, I'm sure you really need to see the video to truly appreciate the images. EarthFlight the book is a tantalizing glimpse at what the video must be like. The BBC DVD is not yet out in the US. I really look forward to watching it (and buying it for the library's collection) once it is available. In the meantime, EarthFlight is available for checkout at the library. If you like birds or have ever wondered what it's like to fly with them, I think you will enjoying browsing through EarthFlight.
