[CAWING]

NARRATOR:

It's a universal dream...

...to y like a bird.

To soar on wings into the heavens.

[HONKS]

But it's nothing compared to the reality.

[AIR WHISTLING]

Experience our planet as never before:

Through the eyes of birds.

[PEEPING]

This is a journey

that will embrace the world.

A flight across the earth

on feathered wings.

It's a fantastic voyage...

...following the changing seasons...

...and taking in some

of the greatest events on Earth.

Experience a year

in the life of our planet...

...from the lush tropics...

...to the frozen North...

...and catch a glimpse of our world...

...as never before:

From a bird's-eye view.

[HONKING]

It's spring in North America...

...and families of snow geese

begin an epic 2000-mile journey...

...across the continent.

[STEAMBOAT HORN BLARING]

They've spent the winter

in the far South, but now...

...they have to fly

all the way to the Arctic to breed.

They won't be traveling alone.

[HONKING]

They join other snow geese families...

...united by a common goal.

The ock grows in strength...

...until snow geese...

...fill the sky.

Then hundreds become thousands.

Within a few days...

...their ranks are over a million strong.

They gather at these

traditional staging posts...

...to wait for the perfect weather

and favorable winds...

...that will help power their migration.

They become a vast army...

...ready to take over a continent.

[HONKING]

But where flocks gather...

...so do predators.

The bald eagle.

America's national bird.

A creature of cunning and power...

...and the Hook's greatest enemy.

There is safety in numbers.

Many eyes to watch for danger.

They react as one...

...the message rippling

through the ock.

The eagle appears spoiled for choice.

But it's not that easy.

Their sheer numbers confuse the predator.

They form a blizzard of geese...

...impossible to target or see through.

[AIR WHISTLING]

She must try her luck elsewhere.

[DUCK QUACKING]

[SCREECHING]

True skill comes from years of practice.

What goes down

must come up.

[DUCK SQUAWKING]

With a fair wind blowing...

...the snow geese

take their cue to leave.

[HONKING]

They become part

of a spring migration...

...across a greening continent...

...one that features

millions of other birds.

In Europe, common cranes

crossing the Mediterranean...

...lead a similar mass

invasion from Africa.

Like snow geese,

they travel as a family...

...the younger birds gaining

from the knowledge of their parents.

They'll spend the next three weeks

traveling to their breeding grounds...

...on a continent now blossoming with life.

[HONKING]

They follow traditional routes,

a flight path that, for many...

...includes Western Europe's

largest river delta.

The Camargue in France.

Below are the famous white horses...

...an ancient breed...

...that has roamed

the sea marshes for centuries.

[HORSES WHINNYING]

[WHINNYING]

As well as horses...

...the marshes provide shelter

for a wealth of birdlife.

Four hundred varieties in all.

The cranes speed onwards

to Northern Europe.

They still have a journey

of 1500 miles to go.

[HONKS]

To keep on course...

...birds use a magnetic sense...

...that tells them their position

at any one time.

They also use the sun

as a compass point...

...even allowing for its changing position

as it arcs across the sky.

But despite a sophisticated

navigation system...

...they prefer to trust their eyes.

Landmarks, such as Chateau

de Chenonceau in the Loire Valley..

...are used as a guide

from year to year.

Young birds on their first migration
