NATURE | Parrots in the Land of Oz | Budgie Mating | PBS

Duration: 01:42

The ability of the budgerigar to see ultraviolet light plays a crucial role in the budgie mating game. They're just one of Australia's flamboyant parrot species whose wild behaviors are captured up close in "Parrots in the Land of Oz," premiering on PBS Sunday, January 27 at 8 p.m. (check local listings). Academy Award-winning actor F. Murray Abraham narrates the film, part of the 26th season of "NATURE," the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen/WNET New York for PBS. Major corporate support provided by Canon U.S.A. Inc. and Toyota. For more information, visit www.pbs.org/nature
