Ray Brown's Talkin' Birds is a call-in show of entertaining conversation about wild birds -- attracting them to your back yard, identifying them, feeding them, and learning more about them along the way. Every week, we have contests for prizes like bird feeders and other great bird-related stuff, along with expert guests. So, whether you're an experienced birder, or you're new to birding, listen in, and be part of the show by calling in with a question, sharing some information or observations, or trying for one of our prizes. It's birdwatching--in the backyard and beyond.

Essential Birding Podcast
The perfect blend of humor and birding knowledge. Great for beginners, like myself, particularly if you take some time with the back catalogue.
My fiancée and I love this podcast! It’s so informative for any bird lover!
A very worthwhile program for birdwatchers (amateurs and veterans alike).
