Mike Birkhead Associates - Thunderbirds


1995 A BBC Wildlife On One


An investigation into a most unbirdlike bird. Thunderbirds tells the story of two gangs of ground hornbills which battle it out in a desperate, yet sometimes comical, attempt to raise a family. Comical it may look, but comical it is not. To some of the smaller creatures of the African savannah, this is the hornbill from hell. An award winner at Missoula. One of Mike's favourite films, shot by Martyn Colbeck.
