How to Watch our June Movie Matinee Features

The Egg: Life’s Perfect Invention, Nature

Thirteen (13) Seabrook Island Birders “beat the heat” to join us for SIB’s fourth movie matinee this past Tuesday. If you were not able to attend, you may still be able to watch these documentaries.

The Egg: Life’s Perfect Invention, is a 53-minute episode from PBS Nature (Season 37 Episode 12). How is an egg made? Why are they the shape they are? And perhaps most importantly, why lay an egg at all? Step by step as the egg hatches, host David Attenborough reveals the wonder behind these incredible miracles of nature. To watch, you can stream it through PBS.

Our second movie was Remarkable Birds, a 28-minute film by Coastal Kingdom. What is it about birds that makes them so appealing? Join Tony for a closer look at some of the avian fauna living in the LowCountry – butcher birds, Spoonbills, Clapper Rails and more! To watch, click here.

We hope you enjoy these two programs and share with your family and friends.

SIB Movie Matinee: Opposable Chums

For SIB’s third movie matinee, we will be presenting Opposable Chums: Guts & Glory at the World Series of Birding, a 2008 documentary/comedy 64 minutes in length.

Screen Shot 2019-04-05 at 4.37.25 PMAs described on Amazon: “The World Series of Birding features more than 70 teams competing to identify the most bird species in 24 hours. It’s equal parts scavenger hunt, science expedition, and endurance test. OPPOSABLE CHUMS, as seen on PBS, features renowned birders David Sibley, Kenn Kaufman, and Pete Dunne. Taking you along for the raucous ride, OPPOSABLE CHUMS may well be the very first nature documentary comedy.”
