Since the old times, people have been predicting the future by looking at birds flying. An ornithologist observing migratory routes of birds from the Dolomites in Italy reveals that the migratory period of birds has changed. This is because the birds have readjusted their calendars to the climate changeinduced timetable shift in their food source, insects. The ornithologist critiques humanity's endless development and destruction that will only lead to catastrophe when even insects and birds have already adapted to climate change. This superb short presents a marvellously beautiful take on a critical subject. (Billy CHOI)
