Birders: The Central Park Effect 2012

Product Details     There is an abundant array of wild birds regularly stopping at Manhattan’s Central Park.  Some New Yorkers schedule their lives around the rhythms of bird migration.  An author, trombone technician, teenager and a bird-tour leader are just a few of the people bird watchers.  It’s a dazzling world that can go completely unnoticed by the 38 million people who visit Central Park each year.
     This is very good, you see into the lives of the birds and the people who come to watch them.  I didn’t know a lot of the information presented about the birds and Central Park.  4* (I really liked this movie)

60 min, Doc directed by Jeffrey Kimball with Regina Alvarez, Anya Auerbach, Mike Bryant, David Burg, Irving Cantor, Starr Saphir.

Note:  Imdb 7.8 out of 10, 100% critic 75% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
Special Note:  Starr Saphir is the bird-tour leader, she mentions she has cancer but still goes as much as possible to the Park.  I looked her up and unfortunately she passed away on 2/5/13.
