The Birdwatchers' Society of Andhra Pradesh (BSAP), in collaboration with Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad, presents, on a monthly basis, The Life Of Birds - a BBC series of 10 documentary screenings exploring the life of birds.

This month, the 21st of October, the topic is "Fishing For A Living", and this will be screened from 6pm at the Goethe-Zentrum office premises.

In the documentary, David Attenborough, a naturalist, hosts an exploration into the secret lives of these magnificent creatures.

4th in the series, Fishing For A Living is about birds that not only find food in every part of the land, but are also experts in collecting it from water. The fishing techniques of dippers (that swim completely below water to search for food), kingfishers (that use a 'harpoon' technique, diving from a vantage point) and darters (that use a combination of both methods, stalking its prey underwater before spearing it) are all filmed in detail.

Then, there is the reddish egret (that uses a kind of dance to flush out aquatic inhabitants), skimmers (that have different-sized mandibles, the lower one being used to skim the water's surface for small fish), ducks (that have developed an assortment of angling skills), waders (which specialise in feeding on mud flats at low tide, and include avocets, godwits, dowitchers and sanderlings) pelicans (that feed in groups, their pouch-like bills being more successful when used collectively) and boobies (that fish in the open ocean and dive-bomb en masse).

Entry to the screening is free for everyone. Please contact Goethe-Zentrum at 6552-6443 for further details.
