Sunday, January 10 at 8 p.m. – Nature "Hummingbirds: Magic in the Air"

(Rochester, NY) Hummingbirds represent one of nature’s most interesting paradoxes — they are the tiniest of birds, yet they qualify as some of the toughest and most energetic creatures on the planet. Nature "Hummingbirds: Magic in the Air", airing Sunday, January 10 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable1011/cable11), takes an in-depth look at knowledge gained from scientists currently making great breakthroughs in hummingbird biology, making this a perfect time to focus on these shimmering, flashing jewels of the natural world. Beautiful high-definition, high-speed footage of hummingbirds in the wild, combined with high-tech presentations of their remarkable abilities, help viewers to understand the world of hummingbirds as never before.
 
This program is offered with Descriptive Video (DVi), which provides concise descriptions of the sets, scenery, costumes, action, and other important visual elements between the dialogue of the program.
