Be an eyewitness to the breathtaking moment when a chick hatches from its egg, the growth of young birds in their nest, and how birds camouflage themselves, fly, hunt, and feed. See inside a nest of baby blue tits during their first few days of life, find out why wings are different shapes and sizes, discover which are the world’s biggest, smallest, fastest, and slowest birds, and much, much more!
