Short bits designed to gather interest in birds and birding
A series of short segments that call attention to the birds around you and their behaviours - calling attention to what gets tuned out in your daily lives. Encountered first on my local NPR station, later came to the podcast for the items I missed.
Two minute bliss
I don't even particularly like birds. But this podcast does such a good job of transporting you to another world it's amazing. In a short two minutes I feel just as stimulated as reading a book.
More to learn about birds than you know
Even if you think you know a lot about birds, you'll find these brief episodes informative. There is always some little detail that I never thought about that they include when they cover topics such as how do seabirds drink salt water, how city and country birds of the same species differ, or what chickadees do to stay warm on a cold night. I also enjoy hearing the songs, whether alone for us to compare to something else or as background to the spoken information.
