THE BIG YEAR
Yesterday Rob and I went to see "The Big Year", a birding movie we had been anticipating since we first heard about it months ago.
It's based on a book of the same title and is about The Big Year birding competition, which is basically who can see the highest amount of species in one year. The movie story revolves around the lives of 3 men all out for a "big year".
I haven't read the book yet, but will, I actually wanted to see the movie first.
We enjoyed the movie immensely! I liked it more then I thought I would. I was worried there wouldn't be enough "birding", but I was wrong. There is a great balance between the birding and the stories of the men involved in the competition, all of them dealing with something different, that even non-birders would enjoy it.
Two "Feathers Up" from me!
