The Life of Birds With David Attenborough

Submitted by on December 9, 2009 – 1:01 am2 Comments

The Life of Birds with David AttenboroughThe Life of Birds with David Attenborough is a documentary that takes you on an incredible journey through the avian world. But did you know that you can watch the entire thing, all ten episodes, online for free?! Legally!

The Life of Birds took over 3 years to make. They traveled over 256,000 miles to 42 countries and used over 200 miles of film! Every sound of every bird was recorded live in the field.

Now if you haven’t seen this documentary, here’s an awesome clip from the Signals and Songs episode to give you an idea of what to expect. This video of a Superb Lyrebird mimicking the sounds of cameras and chainsaws has been viewed a few million times, so you may have seen it before and not realize that it was from The Life of Birds.

If you liked this clip, I’m sure you will enjoy the rest of the documentary. See all the episodes of The Life of Birds on YouTube.

It really says a lot when people believe in the quality of their product so much that they make it available online for free. I think most companies would be a little worried about doing this because they think it would hurt sales. Well, it would only hurt sales if the product wasn’t that good! As for The Life of Birds, I watched the whole thing and it just made me want to buy it even more!

You can purchase The Life of Birds DVD on Amazon.
