Customer Review 1:
I treasure this film that chronicles charming and heartwarming interactions between momma and baby hummers. The choice of music is quite fitting and humorous at times, which made me laugh whenever "The U.S. Air Force Song" kicked in. It is a lovely film, and my whole family loved it!
Customer Review 2:
Incredible footage of two hummingbirds from hatching until final flight away from the nest. You can see the momma hummingbird tirelessly return repeatedly to feed her young. Simply wonderful to watch... (Daryl, Valencia, CA)
Customer Review 3:
Excellent close-ups footage of newborn hummingbirds in the nest, as they are nurtured and fed by their mother. Watch them test their tiny wings and finally take-off for the first time. Edited to the music of Bach, this DVD is a great addition to your nature collection. Perfect Chirstmas gift. (Braddon, Burbank, CA, USA)
