Documentaries To Watch If You Love Birds
Staying indoors can be fun when there are nature documentaries to watch! If you’ve got a day free to get cosy on the couch and watch some beautifully shot documentaries, we’ve got plenty of options for you to choose from…
The Life Of Birds
No documentary list would be complete without a David Attenborough series! The Life Of Birds outlines the basics of being a bird. From birdsong to egg production, this series is an excellent way to brush up on your ornithological knowledge.
If you’re looking for a show to binge watch, you’re in luck- Natural World has been airing for decades, and there are hundreds of episodes to choose from!
While this BBC documentary series covers a range of nature subjects, many of the episodes focus on birds from across the world. If you’re quick, you can still catch a recent episode on BBC iPlayer, which is all about the peregrine falcon!
Bill Oddie’s How To Watch Wildlife
If you can find this on DVD, purchase it immediately! This series will assist you on your wildlife watching journey. Oddie runs through a variety of tips and tricks to help you spot a range of wildlife. This will inspire you to get off the sofa and get to your nearest reserve!
Flight Of The Butterflies
While this Netflix doc isn’t strictly about birds, it’s a crucial insight into the life of the butterfly. As we know, butterflies are an important part of the wildlife infrastructure- so learning about the dangers this species faces will help you understand your garden’s wildlife as a whole.
Haven’t Got The Attention Span?
If you haven’t got the time to sit and watch a full documentary, there are plenty of short videos to watch on YouTube! We’d recommend that you head to the National Geographic channel. Their ‘Nature & Environment’ playlist alone has over 400 videos on it! There’s plenty of content on the channel and most of it comes in at less than 10 minutes long.
Bring The Documentary To Your Door!
If you want to enjoy watching nature from the comfort of your own home, head to your garden! Placing premium suet in durable feeders will get the birds flocking to your garden in no time. And all you have to do is sit back and watch the show!
