For SIB’s third movie matinee, we will be presenting Opposable Chums: Guts & Glory at the World Series of Birding, a 2008 documentary/comedy 64 minutes in length.
As described on Amazon: “The World Series of Birding features more than 70 teams competing to identify the most bird species in 24 hours. It’s equal parts scavenger hunt, science expedition, and endurance test. Opposable Chums, as seen on PBS, features renowned birders David Sibley, Kenn Kaufman, and Pete Dunne. Taking you along for the raucous ride, Opposable Chums may well be the very first nature documentary comedy.”
- The contest goes from midnight to midnight.
- The playing field is the state of New Jersey.
- Any vehicle except aircraft may be used.
- All birds counted must be alive and unrestrained.
- Teams may begin the event anywhere in the state, and follow any route they devise.
- But each team must cross the Finish Line by midnight.
