Überflieger - Die verblüffenden Leistungen der Vögel

Birds are true high-achievers: they are astonishly intelligent, are endued with a GPS in their beak, and they can travel non-stop for 7.500km. How do migrant birds manage to adapt their migrant comportment to the currently changing climate conditions within the shortest time? How do birds use the magnet field of the earth for their orientation? How do birds learn to sing? Furthermore, this documentary also presents owls at the oculist, and treacherous common ravens, searches for peregrine falcons, Eurasian jays and rare singing birds in the city and undertakes an extraordinary experiment: how good are the eyes of an eagle in real?
