Welcome. We’d like to introduce you to Avian Spectrum’s 12 Volume DVD Series: A Live Action Video Portfolio of North American Birds Avian Spectrum is a video production company created by Bob Hamblin, a videographer who has been photographing the birds of North America for 30 years. For this project Bob traveled more than 300,000 miles through nearly all of the U.S. states and Canadian provinces. This collection of DVDs features more than 14 hours of material, all recorded in the field under natural conditions and habitat.  It showcases over 600 species of North American birds. Each volume covers a specific group of birds and all species accounts include live action video, range maps and professionally recorded narratives that describe field marks, behavior and habitat. Audio recordings of songs and calls are also included for most birds. Footage includes endangered species such as Tamaulipas Crow, Thick-billed Parrot and Smooth- billed Ani. Also included are rare and hard to find birds such as Five-striped Sparrow and Yellow- green Vireo, plus many others. Unique to this DVD series is footage that includes territorial fights, courtship displays, nesting behavior and bird interactions with other animals, such as snakes and gophers. One never-before- seen clip shows a hummingbird that impaled itself into a wood wall. Bob has previously sold his work through the American Birding Association (ABA) with over 10% of the membership making a purchase. Paul Lehman (former ABA Editor) and other ornithologists have reviewed every aspect of this lifelong endeavor. Please see our Products page for descriptions and species lists of each volume and our Video  page for introductory video clips. We think you’ll agree that A Live Action Video Portfolio of North American Birds is the most detailed and comprehensive series of birding videos on the market. “Compared to standard bird guides live action audio and video is the best and easiest way to learn about birds.  It’s like going into the field with your own personal interpreter. Many people have told me that video field production was not a worthwhile endeavor but I persevered and here it is, a lifetime of work condensed into A Live Action Video Portfolio of North American Birds. Producer • Bob Hamblin
Over 600 Species on 12 DVD Volumes Filmed on Location, under natural conditions and habitat.
