New birding and wildife 5-part "Wild Canadian Year" documentary on CBC and "Blue Planet II" on BBC Earth!

I just finished watching episode one of "The Wild Canadian Year" by the Nature of Things on CBC. This program began on September 24, 2017 and  it airs Sundays at 8pm on CBC. You can also find this on demand or online. This is a new five-part legacy series, which will view Canada’s extraordinary wildlife through the lens of its four distinct seasons. This program is so well done and narrated by David Suzuki.

Feel free to watch the trailer below:

The first episode named Spring is online now. They discuss many mammals like Sea Otters, Wolves, Grizzly Bears and Cariboo and many birds including Great Gray Owls, Snow Geese, American White Pelicans, Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers, Ruby-throated and Rufous hummingbirds.

You can watch the full first episode of the program online HERE and you can read more about this documentary series HERE

This show is as CBC puts it "a dazzling cinematic journey across the country revealing remarkable never-before-filmed wildlife behaviour and spectacular Canadian landscapes." To me it is the Canadian version of the Planet Earth series with David Attenborough. Speaking of which his new series is due out this year Blue Planet II, which looks incredible please see the trailer below.

Happy Watching.
