I am a budding birder. This got my juices going... movie focuses on CABS. A group trying to help migratory birds. Specifically, the direct action component of their cause. Pretty drilled down...

I read the Franzen essay this documentary was written on and was just fascinated by this story. I had no idea that hunting song birds was such an issue in Europe. I thought the documentary did a good job of showing the flaws of these bird protectors, but also showing the hear behind what they do.... Made me feel good to know that the laws are being more strictly enforced now.

A worthwhile cause but the subject matter seems hardly adequate to fill a movie. It could have been covered just as well as a segment on 60 minutes.

Exposes the illegal poaching of migrating birds in Europe and the indifference of the European Union to enforce the laws. Several committed bird lovers do what they can to foil poachers and release hunted birds. As trophy hunting is in the news, here is a dirty secret happening in Cyprus, Malta, Italy and France.
