The Big Year – I Like Birds

I always get lots of nature-themed presents and this year was no different. Amongst the books was a film called ‘The Big Year’ with Jack Black, Owen Wilson and the legendary Steve Martin. It’s about birders competing to see the most species in a single year.

It’s not going to go down as a classic, but it’s a fun, sweet, good-natured film. Unlike the real hardcore twitchers, nothing these people do to each other is that outrageous (or criminal), so it’s pretty affectionate really.

There’s a great little Eels song featured, called ‘I Like Birds’. Well worth a listen:
