Jim Williams has been watching birds and writing about their antics since before "Gilligan's Island" went into reruns. Join him for his unique insights, his everyday adventures and an open conversation about the birds in your back yard and beyond.
The new movie "The Big Year" is an entertaining two hours, perhaps not as good as two hours in the midst of heavy bird migration, but worth a look. It certainly is as entertaining as many movies released this fall. Roger Ebert liked it. StarTribune film critic Colin Colvert hated it, but he probably needs to spend more time outdoors, less time in theaters. The concensus among email posters on the two birding networks I subscribe to is, see it. See it soon, however, one viewer writes, because the movie is likely to have a short shelf life. Birders will like it, but it's not going to be a box-office hit.
