Review of “Down to Earth: Flightless Birds” (2016)

Moving picture, 52 minutes

Seen in 2020.

Seen with English-language narration.

Mainly the ostrich, less of the kiwi, still less of the takahē and very little of any other flightless bird species.

For ostriches, prefer “A Life on the Run” (2015). For New Zealand, including its ecological problems, prefer Earth’s Mythical Islands (2016).
