You’re a Sparrow. Here’s How to Survive New York

Sparrows have adapted in remarkable ways to life in the Big Apple. In Kurt Mayer’s short film Planet Sparrow (for ORF, Arte, and NDR), see incredible close-ups of these plucky birds feeding, hunting, and surviving in New York’s urban jungle.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society.
