Earthflight

Is anyone in the UK watching forthright on the beeb?
Got it recorded but only managed 20 minutes so far.
It looks amazing.
Dunno if you guys across the pond can get it on bbc iplayer on computer.
Next weeks episode explores South America and they have macaws on!
I cant wait!!!

Unfortunately, it hasn't made it's way to BBCA but I have watched all the preview clips on YouTube! I mean, really, it's like a late Christmas present... a gorgeous documentary on my favorite animals hosted by my favorite tasty actor What more could a girl ask for? Well, other than Mr Tennant in person...

Now just throw some John Barrowman in the mix and it'd be my two favorite handsome sci-fi actors Can you tell I'm a nerd?

I just watched South American one.
Scarlet macaws, I always think they look like flying rainbows!
I never considered owning a macaw before but their faces are so expressive. And the way they blush with excitement makes me wonder if they're easier to read than smaller species.
Although Bob lets me know when he's unhappy!

I noticed many of the shots were actually green winged macaws. There were also mealy amazons and blue headed pionus

Macaws can be easy to read, when they blush. But they have to be feeling very strongly to blush. Macaws can actually be quite tricky to read until you get a feel for them

It was really good tonight the budgie flock was amazing, I loved how they out smarted the black falcon. I was absolutely drooling over the Steller's sea eagle, it's one of my favourite birds and that flock of 'toos was HUGE
