Earthflight: South America

Earthflight: South America

Wednesday, September 25 at 8:00 p.m.

View South America through the eyes of condors and macaws, petrels, hummingbirds and vultures.

Condors and scarlet macaws take us to the Andes and the Amazon. Giant petrels in Patagonia shadow killer whales. Hummingbirds feed at Iguazu Falls, vultures ride the thermals over Rio de Janeiro and black vultures target turtle eggs in Costa Rica.

"Earthflight" is a "Nature" special presentation, airing each Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. through October 9. The miniseries uses sophisticated camera techniques to show the world from the amazing aerial perspective of a bird's-eye view.
