The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision: 500+ videos of birds
The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision has just finished uploading over 500 video's of bird filmed in The Netherlands by a professional film producer. This is a donation made possible by the Foundation for Nature Footage (Stichting Natuurbeelden) and the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision. The collection contains beautiful and unique footage of different bird species, in a variety of landscapes displaying different types of behavior. The entire collection can be found in the category Stichting Natuurbeelden on Open Images. Even though the meta-data is in Dutch, the Latin bird-names are contained in the meta-data as well, which should make it possible to still find these videos for use on international chapters.
