Feathering the Nest: The Secret Life of Birds (Enhanced DVD)
Feathering the Nest: the Secret Life of Birds is the second in a series of five episodes. Iolo Williams, wildlife expert, hosts this special as he investigates bird behaviors as they breed and nest. This feature spends time observing the unusual ways birds go about their mating habits. This enhanced DVD observes great crested grebes as they go about their courtship displays, the way nuthatches prepare a nest using a muddy cement-like material, the skilled next building of long-tailed tits, and one colony of shags that nests far earlier than others in Wales. This video will look at where house martins nested before they had the opportunity to use buildings as the perfect spot for their homes. Other birds, including puffins, are featured to show the different ways in which they nest.
By the end of the video, viewers will have a better understanding of the amazing ways in which birds prepare for the next generation and just how complicated their courtship can be.
