My only source for bird vocalization and ornithology.

I started birding seriously when I was just a young lad in the mountains of the Wasatch front. I'll never forget the sound of new born nightingales singing as the winter succumbed to spring. Mom would always plea "Find a girlfriend, Tyler. Please. You're embarrassing our family". What Mom didn't know was that my heart was already full - full of the ballad of the Pied Butcher. My teenage years turned into adulthood and adulthood brought new trials and tribulations. However, one light shines brighter than all the darkness and sings more beautifully than the Calyptorhynchus Funereus (Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo) - and that light is this Podcast. You see, turns out my heart wasn't full, it just had a small space left for The Birdcall Review. Now, I am complete. I am one. Like Eponine in Les Miserables, now that I have this Podcast in my life "It will keep me safe and it will keep me close, and rain will make the flowers grow".

Actually Good

This is a surprise winner of a podcast. This show makes other bird-related podcasts seem banal and trifling by comparison. A true must-listen for ornithologists and nature lovers in general. ZOMFG!
