Customer ReviewsSee All
I love this podcast so much. Laura Ericsson strikes the perfect balance between thoughtful, educational and heartwarming in less than 10 minutes. I love her personal anecdotal observations re birds while also incorporating macro knowledge and issues to the topic. What I like best is how each podcast is not long but not too short either!
I love your show as it is thoughtful and genuine, but also courageous. In these times it is right to speak truth, because you don't get to be for the birds if you're against a compassionate life.
If you love birds, you need this podcast!
Laura is a rock star! I have learned so much of what i love about birds from her books, and to have a way to listen to her is such a blessing. She is not only brilliant, but kind and compassionate and generous with her knowledge. Her podcast is a total treat.
