Entertaining and full of information!

I love this podcast. The hosts are knowledgeable, friendly and funny! I have learned so much, and the new learning has increased my enjoyment of spotting and feeding all the birds that visit my yard. I especially loved learning about the Merlin app. I use it daily and enjoy watching my Life List grow. Thank you!

Love this podcast

I love this podcast. I have listened to every episode multiple times. They bring me so much joy. I’m one who got into birding as a result of the pandemic. My daughters and I started feeding birds as something to do to fill the lonely days. It brought us so much excitement. We started off only knowing the common bird names. Now we know lots of bird’s names, all about beaks, feet, and what they love to eat! I love that this podcast is family friendly and they can listen to it with me. Thank you all so much!

Great podcast for birders!

I love all the information in this podcast. I have maybe 10 different books and multiple apps on birds and birding but this adds another important people to people interface making a complete library of information and ideas! Great job to the presenters. Thank you.
