BBC: Wings 3D


can see a landmark just once...

...and remember it for a lifetime.


One day, they'll use such sites

to guide their own families.

Below, the trout in the river...

...are full of the joys of spring.

But not for long.

A migrating osprey had spied...

...his meal from above.

But there's always one that gets away.

He plunges at 50 miles per hour.

It's this seasonal abundance of prey...

...that makes the osprey's 5000-mile

journey from southern Africa...

...worth all the effort.

Over the Baja Peninsula

at the southern tip of North America...

...another spring gathering

is assembling.

Brown pelicans are attracted

by the vast anchovy shoals...

...that migrate to these rich waters

at this time of year.

The drab juveniles are still

learning the ways of the ocean.

They rely on their more colorful

elders to show them the way.

The youngsters watch

their every move...

...benefiting from their greater

experience and wisdom.

They must understand

the habits of every sea creature...

...that might lead them to a meal.

Humpback whales have traveled...

...two and a half thousand miles

from the Arctic... breed here.

Adult pelicans know

that whales announce their arrival... breaching.

For the younger birds,

it's a new and baffling sight.

But by learning

to follow whales...

...pelicans are often

rewarded with a meal.

But today, these ocean giants...

...have courtship on their minds.

The pelicans must find

alternative guides to food.

They can appear without warning.

Devil rays.

A sea creature

that seems to envy the birds.

Why they take flight is a mystery.

Some think it's to shed parasites.

More likely...

...the splashes

corral fish and plankton...

...making them easier to catch.

It's tempting to think
