A street smart red bird with a heavy New York accent serves as the narrator, who tries to explains why it's tough to be a bird. This edutaining animated short with documentary segments explains the common evolutionary origin of birds, how various cultures have perceived the birds throughout history, how some species have become extinct or endangered due to human activity, how people like birdwatchers or townsfolk of Hinckley, Ohio, where the annual Buzzard Day is celebrated, enjoy the birds in a friendly manner and what a monty pythonesque cutout animation collage with birds looks like.
It was the last animated short film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios to win an Academy Award, until Paperman (2012). See more »

I'm just glad to know that this thing really existed, and I wasn't just imagining things at the age of seven!! I'd love for this to go to home video; it's an imaginative and totally skewered animated documentary which seems to borrow a lot of its style from the animated MONTY PYTHON. The bird who narrates is continually bandaged and casted, and even the 60's NBC peacock arrives in a 2-second cameo to sneeze his feathers completely off!!
