Bird Bonding

Love the episode on Mindful Birding. And I love my local Wild Birds Unlimited store. The owners always give great bird advice. Their store is a healing sanctuary in a bland strip mall. We need more birds and we need more people talking about birds. This is the place to relax and learn everything birds.

Great podcast for birders!

Fun to listen to and informative. Working on my landscaping to put in bird natural plants like winterberry and various other native plants. Already more activity in our yard. Superb job
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, John and his buddy Keep laughing and sharing

Would love to love this podcast

This podcast can be enjoyable and informative but their frequent chuckling at darn-near EVERYthing they say prevents that. Also, as someone else noted, “species” is both singular and plural when referring to biology. “Specie” refers to coined money.
