Friends, if you want to do a little indoor birding, Vermont Public Television has a new special on pelicans and is repeating some favorites this month:
Sunday, March 20, at 8 p.m., “Nature” presents a dazzling look at hummingbirds -- -- shot in high-speed video -- that lets viewers enter the world of these tiny, high-energy creatures.
Sunday, March 27, 8 p.m. “Nature” goes to the dry Australian outback and finds water birds -- including some 100,000 pelicans who show up when there's flooding every 10 years. This also airs on the VPT World channel Monday at 9 p.m.
Wednesday, March 30, 8 p.m. on “Nature: Birds of the Gods,” a young team of New Guinean scientists take a grueling expedition to find and film Birds of Paradise. Then at 9 p.m., “Nova” follows the epic annual journey of monarch butterflies from North America to a remote area in the mountains of Mexico. This will also air on the VPT World channel Thursday at 8 p.m.
VPT reaches viewers over the air by antenna, cable, satellite and online at vpt.org.
