The documentary: Flying Dinosaurs in the City: Challenges and triumphs of a great blue heron breeding season is LIVE!
You can view the trailer, and rent the full video.
This production is a gripping and information-rich nature documentary of the Great Blue Heron, one of the largest herons in the world. With unique footage, I document the beautiful plumage, breeding behaviour, trials and tribulations of this extraordinary bird, including its tumultuous relationship with a predator: the bald eagle. Using expert interviews, humour, endearing and at times disturbing scenes, the film will incite a deep appreciation for these birds, and the need for their conservation. The film includes beautiful shots of the herons’ environment: the city of Vancouver, its beaches, and Stanley Park, one of the largest urban parks in the world.
