Birds of Paradise

2021 / United States / 7 Minutes / Nick Loud

Film Synopsis

Alison Világ counts migrating waterbirds at Whitefish Point Bird Observatory, near Paradise, Michigan. It’s key to getting a pulse on different populations. But counting birds is more than just science – it’s an escape for her. Despite the harsh, often windy and cold conditions at Whitefish Point, Alison is always sad when migration season is over because she never wants to leave this place. It’s her paradise.
