Kimball's bird footage is attractive on its own, but the way he positions his birders in conversation with one another is why Birders soars. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
As "Birders" makes clear, and as Franzen would surely agree, birds and birders have always been among us and require no reinvention. What they have to offer us is what that heron offered me, for just a split-second – a sense that despite our best efforts we are still a part of nature, and not yet an alien species disconnected from the real world.

The birds are not only gorgeous but, as they poke for food and rustle around, entertaining. Full Review

Beautifully photographed over the four seasons - including Christmas, for the park's century-old bird census - Birders: The Central Park Effect is full of grace notes. Full Review

Wall Street Journal
Should be a delight for everyone. Bird watchers will find affirmation and even explanation for their avocation. People who can't tell a towhee from a titmouse will still wonder at the beauty of it all. Full Review
