A Nobleman's Birds' Life

"The Life of Birds" took three years to make at a cost of $15 million. Sir David Attenborough traveled 256,000 miles during filming - 10 times round the Earth.

They used ultra-slow motion filming, night vision cameras and tiny cameras that film inside nests, allied to plain old-fashioned field craft, to bring in footage of some of the world's rarest birds and examples of remarkable avian behavior never filmed before.

You may have to hunt around to catch the series, but the website is a wealth of information.
