Get a First Look at Netflix’s ‘Dancing with the Birds’ Documentary (VIDEO)


Unlike some other nature documentaries, Netflix’s upcoming Dancing with the Birds focuses on one particular aspect of the animal world: mating rituals.

But the streamer’s new doc isn’t highlighting the mating rituals for all species. Instead, the new project from the team behind Our Planet is exploring the mating rituals between birds-of-paradise. Narrated by Stephen Fry, Dancing with the Birds debuts Wednesday, October 23.

From dances and calls to flashing some feathers, viewers are in for a real treat as the vibrant birds aim to impress. And according to Netflix, Dancing with the Birds “takes a delightful look at nature’s most wondrous gentleman callers.”
