I came across your show via Bird Note.
I want to say that so far it’s a great show and I am looking forward to listening to many more. I am really interested in migration of birds that are part-time residence here in the USI hope you do a show on this topic. Best wishes from Atlanta.
Hope and fun in the midst of so many crises.
This podcast offers a voice of hope and discovery. It’s chock full of bird facts, accessible science process, and love and good humor, set in a dangerous and sometimes heart-breaking world. I highly recommend it.
I grew up down South, in the country, loving birds in their thousands and millions. Then I watched the shore birds disappearing, as I was told the raptors already had, saw the size of the bird flocks in the autumn dwindle to a fraction of those I’d seen as a child in the 60’s.
I fed the birds from my fire escape in my Harlem apartment, and cherished the few charming feathered individuals brave enough to live alongside so many people.
This podcast offers information and a path to involvement in bringing back the 3 Billion birds we have lost in this country within my lifetime: the decline I have watched happen. Set against the existential crisis of the pandemic, this podcast offers a way to look at one mass casualty - of birds - and find ways to cope with the human mass casualty event still taking place around us, though there is not yet any explicit link in the show. Still, that’s what I’m getting out of it.
The path to rebuilding our bird populations is also a map to building sustainability in general, and, hopefully, a world that can be kinder and more inclusive of all the kinds of people in the world too. I’m so glad I tuned in.
Informative and interesting!
So much to love about this podcast: (1) the host is lighthearted and brings such joy to her interviews. I love her laughter. It is hard not to smile while listening to her. (2) she is also a novice birder, so she comes at the topic with a deep interest to learn more. That fresh take on birding and conservation makes this podcast compelling. (3) the show tackles two very important issues that until recently have not intersected much in the broader conversation about each: conservation and racial justice. I can’t wait to hear more!
