Wildlife of Big Bend on PBS 2/10/20

Nature — Big Bend: The Wild Frontier of Texas premiers nationwide Wednesday, February 10 at 8 p.m. on PBS (check local listings), pbs.org/nature, and the PBS Video app.
The film features Big Bend’s remarkable Black Bears – pioneers who came across the Mexican desert and were the first to reclaim Texas after decades of hunting and persecution. Witness in super slow motion the magnificent courtship display of the Lucifer Hummingbird and the extraordinary Pallid Bat stalking its insect prey on the desert floor at night. Observe male Bighorn Sheep fighting for dominance and the unique way beavers keep themselves groomed. Watch the Elf Owl, the smallest owl in the world, hunt food for its chicks. And catch a glimpse of the first-ever footage of Anna’s Hummingbirds nesting in Big Bend.
