On BirdBanter Dr. Ed Pullen will talk birding with other birders. Birding stories of travel, experiences, friendships and great bird sightings and adventures will be open topics of discussion.
The Bird Banter Podcast #81 with Florence Reed and Patrick McMillan
I learned lots and had fun talking with Florence Reed and Patrick McMillan. I learned that most of the people in the world feed themselves on relatively small family farms, and that helping them inprove yields and improve their health and lives. This alone would be a worthy endeavor, but these farming methods can at the same time really make a difference in the global climate change crisis while improving habitat for migratory birds. Birders should care about this. I do, and am so happy to have the chance to talk with these two passionate experts.
You can learn about Sustainable Harvest International on their web site, follow them on Facebook, and support their cause if you feel compelled as I have felt.

The Bird Banter Podcast #79 with Lynn Barber
Lynn Barber, big year birder in several states and the ABA, and author of three books joins me on this episode of The Bird Banter Podcast. Lynn is an accomplished birder and tireless big year birder. She holds the Texas and Alaska big year records, and until 2016 I believe had the highest ABA Big Year total for a woman. She has a great story. Enjoy.
Lynn lives in Anchorage, and prior to the Covid-19 pandemic got stock of her new book, Big Years, Biggest States: Birding in Texas and Alaska that you can get as a signed copy mailed to you by contacting her on email email@example.com Just put book order in the subject line and she'll arrange to send you a copy.

The Bird Banter Podcast #74 with Tom Bancroft
This episode was recorded about a month ago, and the plan was to publish it while I was recovering from a hip replacement surgery. Somehow it slipped by, and is being published a bit later than usual. I think you'll enjoy hearing Tom Bancroft's birding story, and about his career in conservation and ornithology. Enjoy.
Here is a link to Tom's photography website.

The Bird Banter Podcast #77 with John Patten Moss
You may remember John from episode #31 when we talked about his upcoming birding big year traveling only by unicycle and on foot. Well, as with all things 2020 Covid-19 intervened, but the start of his planned big year is story enough to warrant having John back to hear how is adventure went. In a nutshell, crazy and super cool. Enjoy.
Here is a link to John's blog.

Customer ReviewsSee All
I enjoy listening to other birders talk about birding. I get some good ideas to improve my hobby by listening to the show. The host does an excellent job.
Regarding the question about organizing photos in the recent Dennis Paulson episode, I would recommend Lightroom Classic (used on a pc or laptop). I have used it since version 1.0 in 2007 and never had issues. Once you keyword photos, they can be searched in a second. You can also do advanced searches such as find all warblers between April and May. Lightroom also has plugins available that do more advanced data recovery and analysis. Cost is about $10 per month, subscription. There are other good programs such as Capture One, but I’d go with the most common program that is likely to be around in ten years. LR also does great photo editing: crop, modify hi-lites, shadows, exposure, noise, and sharpness. There is almost no need to ever use photoshop. I currently have about 200,000 photos in my main catalog.
Favorite birding podcast!
This is my favorite of the birding podcasts because of its relaxing vibe and that the host and guests live up to its tagline of “birders talk birding.” I’m always looking for ideas for new places and ways to bird. Thanks and keep it up!
I really enjoy these podcasts. They are diverse, educational and fun to listen to. As a new birder I’m learning that there are so many aspects and specialities to take into consideration. That there is no one way to go about this adventure.
It’s somewhat intimidating to have so much to learn all at once. I’ve learned that anyone can do this and I will, in time, find my own niche.
It turns out to be the perfect hobby during a pandemic. I enjoy the new locations, books and training the guests bring to the table.
Ed does a great job guiding the conversations and wrapping it up with lots of additional information and formats to find more insight into each guest.
Well done, keep recording.
