Keepin’ it BIRDY!

It’s always so much fun listening to Talkin’ Birds!! There’s a cool formula to the show but one never knows what’s coming next! Great for birders of all ages and abilities to enjoy. Check it out! Jo in Ca

I absolutely LOVE this Podcast.

Talkin Birds is my absolute favorite Podcast. I never miss an episode. Both informative and humorous. I recommend this PodCast to everyone. I cannot wait for each new Podcast. I have learned so much from this show. The only reason I am giving this Podcast 5 stars is because you can’t give 6.
