Summary:
Imagine finding a pterodactyl alive and nesting on an obscure island. Rare Bird is the true story of a 15-year-old boy who helped find a bird believed extinct for over 300 years and solve the mystery of its existence. Like the myth of the phoenix, the Cahow bird is resurrected on the island paradise of Bermuda at the dawn of its development, a ghost bird returning to teach humanity an important lesson in perseverance. Threatened by manmade development, invasive species, and the pesticide DDT, the Cahow has been on the brink of extinction for over 4 centuries.

This against-all-odds story about a man, a ghost bird, and a struggle for survival takes a dramatic turn, when the bird faces a greater threat: global warming. Ravaged by a recent hurricane, what will David and his successor, Jeremy, do to save the species once again from oblivion? Rare Bird is their tale of hope, inspiration and commitment to the future of all species. This true story is both a miracle and a mystery, and will keep you riveted as the destiny of an "extinct" species plays out in a race against time.

Special DVD features include: scene selections and closed captions.
