PBS take audiences into the world of birds once again this December in a new episode of its hit wildlife series Nature.

This fall, PBS will release Nature: Big Birds Can’t Fly. It will be released Tuesday, December 1st. Over the course of the episode’s roughly hour-long presentation famed broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough examines why some of the world’s ten thousand plus species of birds don’t fly, unlike others. More specifically, he examines why larger species such as ostriches, emus, kiwis, rheas, and Cassowaries don’t fly. Attenborough’s research into why said birds don’t fly reveals a rather interesting find. It reveals that the ancient ancestors of these birds could fly. It also reveals how competition for resources and the eventual lack thereof might have in fact led to the evolution of the birds into their current state.
