The Rite Of Spring

Season 1, Episode 13 of 13

Every spring, thousands of species participate in rituals with a single goal in mind: breeding. Birds migrate huge distances from wintering grounds. Frogs, each with their own unique voice, call from wetlands. Deer and elk battle with antlers as weapons. McMillan and guests explore the amazing, and often bizarre rituals, of many creatures across the continent and right outside your back door.
