Web Series "The Secret of the Birds

The series was created in collaboration with the author Kerstin Mauersberger. Together with the amateur ornithologist and birdwatcher Silke Hartmann (alias the bird watcher) we accompany bird enthusiasts who tell us about their fascination for bird songs as well as birdwatching, and who casually cast a spell over us! In addition, researchers and experts will show us how birds repeatedly adapt to adverse living conditions and what we humans can learn from them.
