Birders: Central Park Effect- Film Screening

Come join us for an exciting event part of Vancouver Bird Week!

 

Birders: The Central Park Effect reveals the extraordinary array of wild birds who grace Manhattan’s celebrated patch of green and the equally colorful, full-of-attitude New Yorkers who schedule their lives around the rhythms of migration.

 

Featuring spectacular wildlife footage capturing the changing seasons, the film reveals that Central Park acts as a magnet for the millions and millions of birds migrating along the Eastern Seaboard twice every year. 

 

Desperate for a rest-stop, the tiny birds funnel in to this oasis of nature amid a sea of steel and concrete – a phenomenon known as the “Central Park Effect.”

 

Filmmaker Jeffrey Kimball’s lyrical film transports the viewer to a dazzling world that goes all but unnoticed by most of the 38 million who people America’s most famous park each year.
