For thousands of years, songbirds were regarded by mankind as messengers from the gods. Today, these creatures have woven inextricably into the fabric of our environment and are vanishing at an alarming rate. Under threat from climate change, pesticides and more, populations of hundreds of species have dipped dramatically. As scientists, activists and bird enthusiasts investigate this phenomenon, amazing secrets of the bird world come to light for the first time in the acclaimed and visually thrilling documentary The Messenger. Find out what's killing our songbirds, and what can be done about it. As in ancient times, songbirds may once again be carrying a message to humans - one that we ignore at our own peril.

We watched maybe half an hours worth at a time because the film is powerful. The quality of the filming alone makes it worth watching. The content makes it a must-see.

Quite informative documentary with scenes from Alberta & Saskatchewan. Great to see that Toronto high rises have laws against reflective windows and how easy it is to remedy with little black dots. We had heard of the connection between insecticides and bee deaths but had no idea how high in the ecosystem it was affecting wildlife. A bit painful to watch as the bird bodies kept piling up.

EVERYONE HUST WATCH THIS!!!!!!
