The Fantastic Flying Competition

Welcome to the Fantastic Flying Competition for birds!
The countdown begins and the birds line up for the annual Flying Competition, but one by one each team runs into trouble… The flamingos are stuck! The hawks are out of control! Can anybody beat the chickens? Cheating and fowl-play abound in this dazzling picture animation, where only the spectator can judge who the real winner is.
